Support ORC

The Operations Research Center (ORC) at MIT is one of the most distinguished academic environments for Operations Research in the world. For over 60+ years, the Center has played a leading role in research in the field of OR while educating a large number of exceptional students who have become leaders in OR in both academia and industry.

The ORC is one of the most selective academic units at MIT.  We admit 15-20 doctoral students per year and 5-10 master’ students out of approximately 400 applications.  Our yield is approximately 80%.

In order to continue to attract exceptional students to the Center, funding is need to support our recruitment efforts.  The donations received will help to defray some of the costs associated with our two-day Open house. In addition, the donations will be used towards the costs associated with maintaining a state-of-the-art computing environment for our students.
