Decision Sciences is the union of the quantitative and behavioral approaches to managerial decision making  encompassing all of the functional areas of business. The Decision Sciences Institute is an interdisciplinary association of professionals committed to the understanding and improvement of decision making in organizations, and to the development of scholar-teachers in the decision sciences.  The Institute provides a forum for the exchange of research in the decision sciences across disciplines, seeks to promote and integrate theoretical and applied research, and is an outlet for the publication and dissemination of current thinking in the decision sciences.

Southwest Decision Sciences Institute is a subdivision of the Decision Sciences Institute, Inc., a non-profit professional organization.  The goal of the Southwest Division is to support the goals and objectives of the Decision Sciences Institute. The purposes of the Institute are to enrich the study of decision processes in both traditional and emerging areas of study as well as through the integration of these disciplines; to develop theoretical bases for the planning, design and implementation of decision sciences.
