The mission of The National Graduate School of Quality Management (NGS) is to prepare business professionals through innovative and quality education to position them for success.
NGS programs demonstrate performance-based achievements of its mission at every degree level through the degree “project” which must show tangible results to the NGS faculty and the employer or sponsor. We have required that students demonstrate their knowledge and the application of that knowledge in practical, work-related projects since 1993.
