The master's degree concentration in management information science at California State University, Sacramento has been ranked in the top 25 programs in the country by Computerworld magazine. The program is cited in a September article entitled "Techno-MBA Top Dogs," and is based on a survey of 1,000 recruiters for high-tech companies.
Felicenne Ramey, dean of the College of Business Administration, said, "We are in the company of such universities as Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Texas, Austin and the University of Southern California. This is quite an accomplishment for the management information science department, the College of Business Administration and CSUS. I believe this not only helps our College, but the University as well."
CSUS was the only one of the 23 California State University system campuses named and one of only three universities in California.
The popular CSUS program provides a concentration within the master's degree in business administration. The program, chaired by Thomas Sandman, has doubled in enrollment over the past two years. Sandman said, "We've been growing rapidly. In the fall of 1996 we had 56 students in the program; by fall of 1998 it had grown to 127. That means we are becoming more competitive for admission. For quality, we intend to keep the enrollment right around 120 students."
Of the article, Sandman said, "This is a tribute to our students, our alumni and our faculty who've worked on this program over the years. It is one of the first of its kind in the nation, having been around more than 25 years."
