With the economy right now, your question is a difficult one to answer. Additionaly 1.5 years is minimal experience, and I'm not sure what you define as 'good'. Many people on this board tend to focus on the top 5 to the top 15, but many universities within the top 50 are good universities to attend.

I would suggest you look at universities you are interested in, attend information sessions, and gain a sense of what you think you would enjoy academically and socially. With 1.5 years, you have time, don't rush this decision.

If you decided to go the MIS route, the University of Washington has a strong MIS/MBA program. The school isn't ranked as high as most of the schools people are going after here, but for MIS its a strong option. I believe the MIS/MBA is a 3 yr program. They also have a "Technology Management MBA." What the difference is, I don't know.
