At Mu Sigma you’ll often hear the phrase "Learning over Knowing." It’s one of our guiding principles, and
as such, we expect every Mu Sigman to demonstrate passion for learning. Our work will throw a variety
of concepts at you, ranging from the chemical backings of pharmaceutical drugs to the vast global supply
chains of leading retailers. We help firms improve their decision making, and to do that, we must know
them better than they know themselves. We aren’t just an analytics firm; we’re a Decision Sciences firm.

To succeed at Mu Sigma, you should bring to the table:
 A quantitative mindset: You don’t have to be a Statistics major, but you do have to know how to
work with numbers.
 A critical eye: We want someone who asks questions, always probing for "Why?" or "So what?"
We value contrarian thinking.
 Interpersonal skills: The work involves consulting and client interaction. Clients have to like and
respect you, even when you tell them they’re wrong.

What you’ll do:
 Engage clients to understand their business challenges and how to solve them.
 Work alongside a global delivery team that spans client locations and our India center, solving
data-intensive problems with the analytical frameworks and tools that we provide you.
 Present the results of your work to senior management, offering insightful recommendations that
lead to tangible business impact.
 Build relationships with clients, helping them improve their use of analytics to drive their business
operations forward.

What you’ll gain from the experience:
 A strong foundation in analytics. You’ll learn how to think analytically, and how to quantify and solve a variety of business problems thrown at you.
 Meaningful experience. You’ll work on issues directly relevant to the needs of senior clients, with whom you’ll frequently engage. You’ll also see your work translate into actions.
 A head-start. Big Data analytics is an exploding industry. We’re at its forefront.
