Hi all,

I am not sure if this the right forum but I wanted to know if anyone was applying Management/Business Information System field in the US for Fall 2020. I am trying to shortlist universities to apply but I cannot really
find a appropriate rankings that I can refer. I came across the rankings published by UT Dallas but they vary a lot based on different journals related to Information systems. So, not sure what should I follow. Any help in this regards would be great!

Thanks

There is no fundamental difference between university ranking platforms. however, if you are curious about which one is best to follow, you have to do some search by yourself to understand how each platform developed its ranking methodology.
There are several criteria upon which a ranking is given, such as employability, research capabilities, publishing in Q1 journals, number of international students, ... and more. these platforms weigh these criteria differently.
But the main trick is that you MUST decide on the university depending on its ranking in this particular course "ie postgraduate/information system" , not depending on the overall ranking of the university.

Also, in a phd, you should be focusing on your supervisor as well, because he/she will be the big deal for you.
You should observe which supervisors are available in each college and which of them is best fitting with your proposal and which of them you think will be the best option to learn from.

Hi mur282

Basically you don't need any rankings, but UT Dallas is good one to start.

What you need is to first decide what research topics interest you. :idea:

Then you should look into research/journals in those topics and find best authors in the particular sub-field.

Once you find those researchers/professors just look where they teach.

Those should be institutions on your list.

Alternatively you should check their average GRE/GMAT scores and compare them with yours in order to define competitiveness and structure your application list.

Easy as that.



Good Luck with research :cool:
