Combining ingenuity, passion, experience and leading technology.

PwC and Carnegie Mellon University teamed up to establish the Digital Transformation and Innovation Center. It seeks to build trust in society and solve pressing problems.


The Digital Transformation and Innovation Center addresses many of the most pressing challenges facing PwC’s clients and society at large. Created as a collaboration between PwC and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), the center is an ecosystem where digital transformation leads to impactful business outcomes. Leveraging CMU’s industry-leading thought and research leadership with PwC’s strategic client-engagement expertise, research is primarily conducted on artificial intelligence, critical areas in the cyber, risk, regulatory and compliance space, and digital operations.

Pillars — Our research focus areas

Artificial Intelligence

AI is changing the world as we know it - bringing with it inherent challenges around trust, accountability and deployment. With one of the world’s foremost AI programs, CMU is extremely well-positioned to support PwC as we work across the spectrum of AI applications to help our clients boost productivity, increase profits and enhance experiences.

Cyber, Risk & Regulatory

As companies navigate the forces of digital transformation, new business models, regulation, and the evolving risk and threat landscape, unique risks and cyber vulnerabilities that were once improbable are now the norm. With a top-ranked cybersecurity program and the ability to apply advanced AI to risk identification, CMU is helping PwC keep its clients ahead of risks and threats.

Digital Operations

Amid changing consumer expectations, emerging technologies, and disrupted supply chains, staying competitive requires structuring and operating a value chain fit for growth and change. With a top-ranked Operations Management program and industry-leading experience in robotics and advanced manufacturing, including an institute studying the digital transformation of manufacturing, CMU is uniquely positioned to support PwC’s initiatives in this area.
