MIS Undergraduate Program Ranks #3
We are in GREAT Company!
The U.S. News & World Report undergraduate school rankings are out for the 2013 school year.
We are excited to report the MIS Department has been ranked #3 among all schools and #1 among public schools. We have been placed just under MIT and Carnegie Mellon.
U.S. News & World Report ranks colleges and universities based on a number of factors. The institutions are categorized by mission, evaluated on up to 16 weighted indicators of academic excellence and then ranked against their peers based on their composite scores.
The quality measures considered for national universities and national liberal arts colleges include undergraduate academic reputation, which is based on an academic peer assessment and accounts for 22.5 percent of the overall score; graduation and retention rate (20 percent); faculty resources (20 percent); student selectivity (15 percent); financial resources (10 percent); graduation rate performance, or the difference between actual and predicted graduation rates (7.5 percent); and alumni giving (5 percent).
Highlights from the Best Colleges 2013 guidebook are available online.
