The International Honor Society for Operations Research and Management Science
Bucknell University’s Chapter of Omega Rho International Honor Society was established in January 2022 for Operations Research and Management Science – The Honor Society of INFORMS. This chapter at Bucknell and its inaugural executive board (named below), join approximately 6,000 other inductees and 38 Chapters across the world.
Members are recruited during their junior year when they are pursuing a baccalaureate degree in Analytics and Operations Management (ANOP) or displaying adequate interest and rigor in related academic or professional pursuits. Applications are reviewed by the current executive committee and subsequently voted on for admission (simply majority).
Overall, this society looks to engage students of operations research, management science, and other closely related areas in a close-knit community to “develop the desire and intellectual skills for lifelong learning.” Members will gain the opportunity to interact with other students and faculty through local Omega Rho Chapter meetings as well as participate in special events and lectures held by industry professionals.
The faculty advisor is Professor Thiago Serra, Analytics and Operations Management, Freeman College of Management.
