The Decision Sciences Group is a 65-person team, backing a vision where all principle Enterprise activities are supported by best-in-class decision science. We accomplish that by helping our business partners realize optimized, high-impact outcomes, by benefitting from analytics supported strategies and plans. Our mission mandate is to: know the business, know the objectives, know the data, levera...ge the latest tools, and apply the leading techniques. Applied business analytics in an ever evolving marketplace presents numerous challenges, thus we champion strong unstructured problem solvers. Structured problem solving is needed and valued, but one’s ability to adapt to a challenging situation without the backing of direct experience is often more desirable. The Decision Sciences Group at Fifth Third should be thought of as a fluid team of individuals that are willing to support each other both pro-actively and reactively. No roles are forever and we encourage team members to consider other positions within the team (and outside the team) to continue to address their career aspirations.
