A new breed of company requires a new breed of employees
We’re part design studio, part research lab, part data factory.
As such, we need business analysts, applied mathematicians, and programmers. While most firms separate these into three distinct roles, we need them combined into one.
We call them Decision Scientists.
But decision scientists don’t exist
While growing up, you were rewarded for finding the right answers – not for asking the right questions.You were most likely trained in an individual discipline – seeking expertise.
As a result, we have a shortage of the right analytical talent required to deal with today’s complexity.
Hence we decided to do something about it. We launched Mu Sigma University.
Mu Sigma University
Established exclusively for Mu Sigma employees, MSU is a groundbreaking learning and career development program for decision sciences.
Here you will engage in courses taught by actual Mu Sigma practitioners, and participate in hands-on, experiential projects under their mentorship.

MSU is the starting point for all new Mu Sigmans
The Columbus Program
All new hires from university begin their Mu Sigma experience with a multimonth induction into MSU. For those from outside of India, we call it the Columbus Program, named after the wayward explorer.
Fast forward to the 21st century and India is much more than a pivotal point in the spice trade. It’s a rich source of talent, ideas, and startups. All of our decision scientists need to experience it.
The Columbus Program brings US new hires to Bangalore, our hub of innovation and scale, for a combination of training, work, and fun. While in India, new hires will get to:
Learn and work alongside 3,500 Mu Sigma colleagues
Rotate across problems faced by 140+ of the Fortune 500
Explore labs where we research what’s next
Experience a country of rich history and innovation

Mu Sigma's vibe is filled with paradoxes. We are
Methodical and Vibrant
We’re methodical and deliberate in the work we do for clients. But it’s a vibrant workplace. Whether onsite with clients or in our delivery center in Bangalore, the buzz and energy on “the floor” are palpable.
Irreverent and Humble
We don’t fear the business problems we face, nor do we always hold the tried-n-true methods of the past in high regard. But we’re humble enough to know that we don’t possess all the answers.
Geeky and Cool
We’re proud of our math and engineering roots. After all, our name stands for mean and standard deviation. So we acknowledge that we’re a bunch of geeks. But we know that geeky is cool in this world of fast pace change.
