School mission and unique qualities (as provided by the school):

The mission of The National Graduate School of Quality Management (NGS) is to provide educational programs which advance knowledge in the area of Quality Systems Management (QSM), to facilitate the codification of QSM "best practices," and to create innovative models with significant, enterprise-wide or national significance and application.

The National Graduate School of Quality Management is an accredited institution that delivers degree and certificate programs to adult professionals in the private and military sectors online*, on-site, and a combination of the two called blended format.

NGS programs are delivered throughout the country in a highly interactive format by faculty practitioners who combine real-world experience with academic excellence. Our emphasis on practical application enables you to leverage your accomplishments in your current job while advancing your knowledge with proven strategies for success.

Additionally, NGS is committed to stewarding, contributing to, and advancing the body of knowledge in the areas of Quality Systems Management, Six Sigma practices, Health Systems and Homeland Security & Defense through its research, publications, and programs.

Unlike traditional learning institutions that rely on theoretically based research efforts to conduct learning, the National Graduate School of Quality Management offers a real-life learning experience where student teams apply best business practices in an organizational setting to obtain desired process outputs and outcomes. It involves research and analysis of key business processes, accomplished through collaboration between student teams and a sponsoring organization.

Organizations that take on an NGS project do so because they see the potential of having a team of talented and resourceful students looking at an old problem with a fresh and objective perspective. Project teams are typically asked to tackle difficult, chronic and important problems within an organization for which solutions have not been found. In so doing they can help their sponsoring organizations uncover potential problems before they occur and discover new opportunities for change and transformation.
