Student Chapters

Welcome to the website for INFORMS Student Chapters! Future leaders of INFORMS are now in Student Chapters at over 60 universities internationally.

Goals and Objectives

An INFORMS Student Chapter is a venue for learning, a catalyst for professional advancement, and an opportunity for camaraderie. Within a Chapter, student members from business, engineering, and science programs can join with faculty to organize seminars and discussion groups about new methods and applications of OR/MS. The Chapter also enables students to go beyond the bounds of course work and institution as they engage in research activities that lay the groundwork for their future as OR/MS professionals. Of course, occasional social outings enjoyably round out an INFORMS Student Chapter's calendar.
