WHAT WE DO
Sage Analysis Group, an MIT Sloan spinoff, is a strategic management consulting firm using advanced modeling and data analytics to help leaders in both industry and government with highly complex, important issues. Typical challenges we analyze and advise on include succeeding on major acquisition programs, addressing emerging strategic issues, improving enterprise performance, and achieving complex missions with limited resources.
Our analyses integrate and leverage quantitative data, qualitative information, and expert insights to help clients with key decisions. We leverage our mature Data Science and System Dynamics modeling capabilities to identify causal drivers and holistically assess complicated, counterintuitive behaviors in complex environments. We help clients across a spectrum from providing strategic advice backed by rigorous analysis to building innovative, custom, full-stack solutions that provide ongoing strategic insight.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Candidates should be passionate about helping clients tackle tough and unstructured challenges and be willing to stretch themselves and keep learning. Consultants can contribute to a wide range of projects over time depending on their skills, ranging from complex modeling and analysis to diagnosis to working side by side with clients on operational improvement. Project teams work together to identify and diagnose strategic issues; design and conduct detailed quantitative analyses; summarize findings and clearly explain recommendations; discuss and review findings with senior clients; and help clients take action to put these insights into practice.
Work experience and education determine the level at which candidates enter, though progression is based solely on capability and performance. Rapid advancement is possible for outstanding performers.

MEET OUR PEOPLE
“After completing my master’s in chemical engineering, I was looking for a career that would allow me to use my engineering expertise to work on challenging problems in high impact areas. I found that fit with Sage Analysis Group. Their technical, model-, and data-driven approach to consulting, combined with strategic top-down thinking, builds upon my engineering background and expands my problem solving and communication skills. The dedication of the Sage team to both solve complex problems and help others learn and succeed along the way has enabled me to flourish.”
Dana joined Sage after completing her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in engineering at MIT. At Sage, Dana has developed causal models and simulations to help defense clients manage risk and has constructed infectious disease models.
“I chose Sage because I wanted to solve high-impact, interesting problems with my technical data skills while developing non-technical and client-facing soft skills. I found the projects Sage was working on particularly interesting, and found the opportunity to shape the direction of those projects appealing.”
Seth joined Sage remotely after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in engineering from Dartmouth College. At Sage, Seth has developed computer vision systems for a variety of use cases and works to expand Sage’s machine learning capabilities.
