The Fox School's Management Information Systems (MIS) program climbed three spots from No. 17 in the country to No. 14th. This is the third consecutive year that the BBA in MIS has made the U.S. News and World Report ranking and the third consecutive positive move up in the rankings! The Top 15 status places the program in elite top 1% of all 1300 undergraduate MIS programs in the United States. It was also ranked top 10 in the U.S. by TechRepublic for 2008/2009. Fox MIS students are sought by the top firms in the nation, and the placement rate was 100% for the class of May 2012.
