    The INFORMS Student Chapter is hosting Dr. Burhan Sandikci to speak at our seminar Thursday, March 1st. Dr. Sandikci was a former Pitt IE PhD student. Since then, he has been a professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. As a student he won the INFORMS Bonder Scholarship and the IIE Pritsker Doctoral Dissertation Award. All INFORMS Student Members are welcome to join us for a luncheon hosting Dr. Sandikci to discuss more about his experiences in academia in an informal discussion.

    *In order to have a succesful luncheon, we ask that all students who wish to attend the event RSVP by February 23rd. In the event that you have placed an order and can no longer attend, we ask that you cancel your order. We only have room for 30 attendees so ticket preference will be given to Industrial Engineering Students.
