CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - May 16, 2014) - Mu Sigma (http://www.mu-sigma.com), the largest provider of decision sciences and analytics solutions for global enterprise customers, announced today that its Founder and CEO Dhiraj Rajaram has won the prestigious Entrepreneurial Award from Chicago Booth for his contributions in technology and accomplishments in the area of analytics and Big Data.
Dhiraj will be honored at the awards ceremony May 16-17 during Chicago Booth's RECONNECT weekend.
Since 1972, the Chicago Booth Distinguished Alumni Awards have recognized and celebrated outstanding alumni achievements. The 2014 DAA recipients embody the school's dedication to limitless inquiry and courageous leadership. The Corporate Award, Entrepreneurial Award, Public Service/Public Sector Award, and Young Alumni Award honor four alumni who have made an impact across industries and the world.
"I am extremely honored and humbled by this award," said Dhiraj Rajaram, '03 graduate, and now Founder and CEO of Mu Sigma. "I owe a great deal of my success to my education at Chicago Booth. One important aspect that Chicago Booth taught me is that we have to live with a duality of humility and irreverence. Humility because we don't know much, and we will constantly learn. But irreverence because questioning enables you to learn new things. At Mu Sigma we are always questioning, always pushing the boundaries of learning, and striving to do better for our clients."
"Dhiraj has done an impressive job in building Mu Sigma. First, he was prescient in seeing the large opportunity in big data very early on, well before most. Second, he was dogged in pursuing the opportunity and getting Mu Sigma off the ground," said Steven N. Kaplan, Neubauer Family Distinguished Service Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. "His description of his early struggles and, then, first sale, are inspiring. Finally, he has been smart to build his business around relentlessly providing great customer service."
