Mission: Our mission is to establish and institutionalize a fundamentally new approach to decision making; one that is better designed for the incredible pace of change businesses experience today. We call this the New Art of Problem Solving.

Its’ graduation day! Mu Sigma’s interdisciplinary learning program for high school students flagged off on the 24th of May with Inventure Academy, Bangalore. Two months, lots of problem solving sessions, visits to the Mu Sigma Innovation Lab, and several interactions later, here we are at muPathshala’s first ever graduation ceremony!
From the students receiving their Junior Decision Scientist Certification to a Fireside Chat between Sridhar Turaga and Nooraine Fazal, here are the highlights of the day that was.
We have a rich and unique system of platform, people and processes, including over 3500 decision scientists worldwide. To nurture a culture conducive to this ecosystem, we display a certain vibe – which are absolute paradoxes. This vibe catalyzes and scales the institutionalization of analytics and decision sciences in ours as well as our client environment.
For instance, we are geeky. And we think geeky is cool! We are proud of our math and engineering roots. After all, our company name stands for mean and standard deviation.
We are problem solvers and so we are methodical and deliberate about the work we do for our clients. But it’s also a vibrant work place where a lot of buzz and energy is palpable; one that is augmented by a flat organization structure.
We are at once irreverent and humble. Irreverent towards the business problems we face, yet humble enough to know that we don’t possess all the answers. This is in line with one of our core beliefs of learning over knowing.

What we do at Mu Sigma
Analytics and data-driven decision making have the potential to drive distinct competitive advantage for companies. But those same firms are challenged to scale their use of analytics and make analytics integral to all business decisions. As the world’s largest pure-play decision sciences and analytics provider, Mu Sigma helps clients systematize decision support and analytics, and serves as catalyst for making the promise of Big Data real in large enterprises. We help 140 of the Fortune 500 traverse the journey from Data Engineering to Data Sciences and Decision Sciences, providing an integrated man-machine ecosystem of platform, processes, and people products.
Be a Decision Scientist
Bangalore, India, is where 3500 Decision Scientists do problem solving/data science for some of the largest corporations in the world. Mu Sigma, today, is a leader in the Decision Sciences space. We have achieved this because of our belief that talent in our industry needs to be created and not found and that everybody has the ability to become a Decision Scientist.
Every candidate who joins us as a Trainee Decision Scientist (upon graduating) will attend Mu Sigma University. As part of MSU, you will learn the concepts of decision sciences from scratch and have access to technologies used exhaustively and exclusively in the field. Being part of this juggernaut however has several requirements and expectations.

A typical day in the life of an AL
Our people are part business analyst, part applied mathematician and part programmer. While most companies treat these as three separate roles, we view them as one – the decision scientists. The only problem, decision scientists cannot be readily found. And so we set up on recruiting them ourselves and then train them through our in-house Mu Sigma University.
At Mu Sigma University, we start with the basics of design thinking, Story boarding, and structured problem solving. This is followed by an intensive curriculum in analytics – univariate, bivariate, multi-variate, latent class analytics, Bayesian modelling, econometrics, various analytical tool. Then we sprinkle in business acumen, with what we like to call mini MBA for the quantitatively inclined. It’s a substantial investment – because the Decision Scientist is a critical part of our ecosystem.
Through MSU, we develop the right talent and wrap them in the bionics of our analytical processes and platform. It’s not man plus machine, but Man-Machine, the iron man we are talking about.
In the Rest of the World (ROW), we refer to ourselves as Client Services.
