Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore how design for Six Sigma (DFSS) can be extended into a determine, link, define, design, and communicate (DLDDC) to align mission and requirements of programme accreditation body with curriculum design to increase consistency and reduce variations in programme delivery. The paper summarises the literatures on mission and strategic planning of business schools and guidelines of local programme accreditation bodies in the past 10 years with the basic concepts of Six Sigma to illustrate the design process of curriculum via the use of a timely case study to help undergraduate students develop knowledge and skills at qualifications framework (QF) level 5 in Hong Kong. Parameters for a crossdisciplinary case study on quality management module have been well defined to help achieve the intended module learning outcomes compared with traditional lectures, and time in delivery can then be minimised with value added.
