The Fox School of Business undergraduate program in Management Information Systems again ranked among the nation’s best, according to U.S. News Media Group’s 2013 edition of Best Colleges. The Fox School’s Management Information Systems (MIS) program climbed one spot to No. 17 in the country. Overall, the Fox School’s undergraduate business program is ranked 56th in the nation.
“We are not just committed to achieving excellence but also to continuously improving the business education we provide,” Dean M. Moshe Porat said. “This year, our international reputation for quality attracted the largest and freshman class in our history – representing 24 states and 13 countries – and the most academically talented Fox Honors cohort. Excellent students are indeed attracted to a culture of excellence.”
The business school rankings in the 2013 edition of Best Colleges, released online Sept. 12, are based on a peer assessment of deans and senior faculty at each AACSB-accredited undergraduate business program in the U.S.
The research faculty in Fox’s MIS Department was ranked No. 1 in the world in 2010 and No. 3 in 2011, and the department is closely connected to industry through the Institute for Business and Information Technology (IBIT). The school’s Association for Information Systems (AIS) student chapter – the first ever – was named a 2010 and 2011 Outstanding Chapter and earned first or second place in each of the categories it entered at the inaugural AIS international student-chapter competition.
