Message From the Area Coordinator
I am pleased to present the Spring 2013 MIS Newsletter of the Naveen Jindal School of Management at The University of Texas at Dallas. The semester has many new achievements for the area. The graduate program moved up in the latest U.S. News & World Report 2014 ranking of graduate schools — to No. 15 among information systems programs nationwide. UT Dallas hosted the Fourth Annual Strategic Use of Information Technology (SUIT) case competition, which attracted graduate students from 11 leading MIS schools. One of our undergraduate students won a $2,000 scholarship from the Society of Information Management (SIM), a well-known professional IT association. The Center for Information Technology and Management organized a panel session on the role of IT in innovation. The SAP Corporation, the leading vendor of enterprise systems software, recognized UT Dallas’ enterprise systems program by featuring a cover story about the program in its Spring 2013 newsletter. Finally, this is the graduation season. We are happy to hear about the successes our students are enjoying in the job market.
