The Department of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management in the UNCG Bryan School of Business and Economics is among the top 50 information systems programs in the nation as ranked by IS Job Index.

The listing identifies universities with an information systems-focused major and demonstrated excellence as proved by U.S. News and World Report rankings, programs and/or faculty listed on the Association for Information Systems (AIS) collection of journals, or by AIS student chapters.

“A key piece of evidence that substantiates the national recognition is that our doctoral program in Information Systems has had a 100 percent job placement rate, with a majority of our students in tenure track positions in universities with at least a master’s program,” said Dr. Lakshmi Iyer, director of graduate programs in the Department of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management.

“The faculty members and students in the Information Systems and Supply Chain Management areas were always aware of the outstanding quality of the programs in the department,” added Dr. Vidyaranya B. Gargeya, the department head. “This national recognition validates and confirms our experience of more than a decade.”

UNCG’s Department of Information Systems and Supply Chain Management offers bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees as well as four graduate or post-graduate certificate programs.
