The Fox graduate programs in Management Information Systems including the Master of Science in Information Technology Audit and Cyber-Security (ITACS), new online Master of Science Digital Innovation in Marketing (MS DIM), and Information Technology Management concentration (ITM) of the Fox MBA were ranked top 15 in the nation by the U.S. News and World Report rankings of top information systems programs for 2017.

In the 2017 ranking which is based on data collected in 2016, the above programs were ranked 14th in the nation (tied with University of Michigan). Fox MIS moved up 2 slots from the previous rank of 16th in the nation.

The overall 14th in the nation ranking translates into 9th nationally among public universities and 1st regionally among public universities.

“ITACS is quickly becoming a national leader in producing business savvy IT audit and cyber-security professionals; the demand for these individuals is intense in today’s digital centric economy in which internal and external threats continue to multiply,” said Munir Mandviwalla, Chair of the Fox School’s Management Information Systems department.

“The success of the new online Digital Innovation in Marketing is particularly gratifying as it is the first 100% online program that integrates high engagement, networking, and professional development into a streamlined 16 month degree,” said Mandviwalla.
