A Message From The President

On behalf of the entire DSI family, I am pleased to welcome you to The Decision Sciences Institute. We’re glad you've decided to join us in our mission of advancing the science and practice of decision making.

Our history tells the story of tradition, innovation and education, but also with learning and evolution come change. There are a lot of exciting changes happening at DSI. We’re launching this new website that will serve as a portal for our members, students, fellows, sponsors, volunteers, etc. The new site has been designed with the future in mind and plans have been set to provide regional members with access to their specific web portal, where you’ll be able to share and receive information about your experiences/areas of interest. 

Aside from our push for efficiency and restructuring, there has been a shift in the global landscape of decision sciences, business interactivity, information technology and communication over the past few decades. All of which lead us to our focus of this year’s conference; Technology and the Rapidly Changing Global Business Landscape – How the heightened pace of technological innovation is driving change in business and business educational paradigms.

I look forward to seeing you at this year’s conference – Happy 45th Birthday DSI!
