This week U.S.News & World Report announced its 2013 Best Graduate Schools rankings. There’s some great news here for our department:
In specialty rankings, Fox graduate programs offered by the Department of Management Information Systems (MIS) were ranked No. 22 in the country, based on a peer assessment of deans and directors of accredited master’s programs.
Our MBA programs are once again ranked well:
The Fox School of Business Full-time MBA climbed 11 spots in new U.S. News & World Report rankings that also place Fox’s Part-time Professional MBA as the highest-ranked in Greater Philadelphia and recognize the school’s graduate information systems programs among the nation’s best.
Among full-time MBA programs nationwide, the Fox School, at No. 52, and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School are the only business schools in Greater Philadelphia ranked in the 2013 edition of Best Graduate Schools by U.S. News Media Group. U.S. News surveyed 441 graduate business programs overall.
Fox’s Part-time Professional MBA again ranked as the region’s top program, at No. 47 out of the 326 part-time programs nationwide.
The MIS department offers multiple programs for graduate study:
- For MBA students, there is a concentration in Information Technology Management.
- Our new Master of Science in Information Technology Auditing and Cyber-Security (ITACS) program culminates in a capstone that prepares students for the Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) exam.
- The Master of Science in Health Informatics (MSHI) program, jointly offered by the Fox School of Business and the College of Health Professions and Social Work, is an applied graduate degree that focuses on the design, development, and implementation of electronic health record (EHR) systems in health care.
