ITS Newsletter - Summer 2019


Message From the Area Coordinator

The Information Systems Area at UT Dallas is holding steady, both in terms of rankings and enrollments. It is still early in the process, so our master’s programs could matriculate as many students in fall 2019 as we did a year ago, and our undergraduate program could grow, too.

We also have initiated a cohort program in business analytics; the first students enrolled this spring. TFE Times ranked the MS in Business Analytics program 12th among similar programs in the United States, while U.S. News & World Report ranked our information systems graduate programs (MS in Information Technology and Management and MS in Business Analytics) 17th.

On the research front, we remain in first place, based on publications in Information Systems Research and MIS Quarterly combined (UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings™) for the 2016-2019 period. We are in the process of winding down our searches for clinical and tenure-track faculty. We should have updates on new hires and fall enrollments in the next newsletter.

Finally, please join me in welcoming Abeer Sumeir, who joined us last fall as administrative assistant. Thank you again for your continued support.
