The Academy of Decision, Information, and Operations Sciences

 

In 1971, a group of members from various professional organizations formed Alpha Iota Delta, an international honor society in decision, information and operations sciences. The purposes of the honor society are threefold:

  • to confer distinction to students in the decision sciences and information systems disciplines for academic excellence
  • to promote the infusion of the functional and behavioral areas of business with the tools, concepts, and methodologies of the decision  information and operations sciences
  • to promote interest in the disciplines of decision, information and operations sciences

 

Alpha Iota Delta expanded its activities by adding certification programs in Decision Sciences, Information Sciences and Operations Sciences. These certification programs support the professional development of academicians and professionals during their career by documenting and validating life-long learning activities. The purposes of the certification are threefold:

  • to recognize currency in the decision, information and operations sciences disciplines.
  • to promote the life-long learning of the functional and behavioral areas of business with the tools, concepts, and methodologies of the decision, information and operations sciences. 
  • to document continuing education in the disciplines of decision, information and operations sciences.
