The University of Tampa’s Department of Information and Technology Management has been named a “top 50 program” by the Association for Information Systems (AIS) and will participate in the National IS Job Index.
The National IS Job Index project is being led by the Institute for Business and Information Technology (IBIT) at the Temple University Fox School of Business. The top 50 schools were identified to have a substantial information systems major at the undergraduate or graduate level and have shown excellence in one or more of (a) U.S. News and World Report rankings, (b) programs/faculty ranked on the AIS basket of journals and (c) AIS student chapters.
Kenneth Knapp, chair and associate professor of UT’s Department of Information and Technology Management, said that it’s an honor for UT to be listed among many other top MIS programs.
Other schools in the index include Florida State University, Boston University, University of Virginia and Villanova University.
The AIS-Temple Fox School Job Index is a joint five-year project to produce reliable national level data on placement, type of jobs, satisfaction and on related factors such as career services, knowledge level, preparedness and search strategies. The project will produce an annual IS job index report that will include pay scales and career prospect information, and is intended to become the first systematic assessment of the IS job market.
