About ZS Associates

ZS was founded in 1983 by Andris Zoltners and Prabhakant (Prabha) Sinha, two Ph.D. classmates turned college professors at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management. 

While studying at the University of Massachusetts, they’d conducted research together on the knapsack problem, an approach to combining items so that the total weight of those items together is less than or equal to a given limit.

Today, ZS works with companies around the world and across the marketplace, in industries ranging from healthcare to high-tech to financial services and beyond. ZS’s expertise and offerings have expanded significantly as well. We now help clients with everything from discovery through to commercialization, with the strategy, analytics and technology to enable it.

Employee Testimonial :

" I joined ZS in July 2018 as a fresher and couldn't have asked for a better first experience in terms of not just the work but also the people. While the projects I worked on ensured that I had ample opportunity to innovate and be constantly challenged technically, what really struck a chord with me was the ZS culture. Everyone at ZS, irrespective of designation, is so approachable that it puts you at ease. The kind of treatment that I have received from my mentors at ZS is what has motivated me to be better each day. I have experienced firsthand that at ZS, treating people right is not just a fancy phrase, but it is deeply embedded in how we operate as a firm." – Shweta M., business technology analyst, Pune.
