AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - May 29, 2014) - Mu Sigma (http://www.mu-sigma.com), the world's largest pure-play provider of decision sciences and analytics solutions for global enterprise customers, recently graduated its second batch of Decision Scientists from its Austin center. With 75 students having completed its program thus far, Mu Sigma is on track to graduate 250+ Decision Scientists by the end of 2015.
Drawn from the top US schools and from diverse educational backgrounds, program participants are put through a rigorous multi-disciplinary training program combining math, business, technology and behavioral sciences.
Global research firm McKinsey predicts that the United States alone faces a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with analytical expertise. Mu Sigma's training program aims to help close that gap for its clients.
