A new breed of company requires a new breed of employee

We’re part design studio, part research lab, part data factory.

As such, we need business analysts, applied mathematicians, and programmers. But while most firms separate these into three distinct roles, we need them combined into one.

We call that person a Decision Scientist.

But decision scientists don’t exist

Think about your life 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.

So 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’ll 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 multi-month 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.

So 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

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.

The concept of Trimurti in Mu Sigma

Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva synergize to complete the universal cycle of creation, preservation and eventually, productive destruction or transformation. Each member of Mu Sigma’s leadership team is assigned to one of the following clans:
