We are a cross-school student organization that brings together students passionate about operations research (OR) and analytical thinking. We have members across a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs at CMU, including engineering, business, operations research, mathematics, and statistics.

CMU INFORMS broadly aims to:

  • Promote an integrated culture among CMU’s quantitative constituencies;
  • Proliferate information related to Operations Research, Analytics, and Management Sciences;
  • Prepare students for careers in academia, research or business in a culture that is increasingly reliant on large volumes of data and analysis;
  • Provide mentoring for students with interests in OR/MS (academic, research or business); and
  • Secure CMU’s place among the elite Operations Research universities.
