The Rawls MIS faculty ranked ahead of such distinguished programs as Northwestern, Wisconsin, SMU, Texas A&M, BYU, Purdue, and Virginia Tech.
According to a top-100 rankings of schools from 2001-2011, the Texas Tech University Management Information Systems (MIS) faculty in the Rawls College of Business is ranked 47th of the top international universities.
The rankings, assembled by Viswanath Venkatesh of University of Arkansas, are based on publications in the top four MIS journals over the last decade from the Association for Information Systems Senior Scholars’ Basket of Journals. These journals include MIS Quarterly, Information Systems Research, Journal of Management Information Systems and Journal of the Association for Information Systems.
The Texas Tech faculty, part of the Area of Information Systems and Quantified Science (ISQS), is placed ahead of many highly recognized MIS programs in business across the world.
“This achievement is an international recognition of the high-quality scholarship generated by our MIS faculty,” said Lance Nail, dean and professor of finance in the Rawls College of Business. “For Rawls faculty to rank ahead of such distinguished programs as Northwestern, Wisconsin, SMU, Texas A&M, BYU, Purdue, and Virginia Tech is a tribute to their work as thought leaders in their field.”
There currently are 14 MIS faculty members in the ISQS department whose research includes a variety of interests such as systems development, electronic commerce, database modeling and information requirements determination.
