Top 10 Management Information Systems (MIS) Colleges Tuition Comparison

A Management Information System (MIS), a specialization of MBA, gives the business managers the information that they need to make decisions. Early business computers were used for simple operations such as tracking inventory, billing, sales, or payroll data, with little detail or structure. Over time, these computer applications became more complex, hardware storage capacities grew, and technologies improved for connecting previously isolated applications. As more data was stored and linked, managers sought greater abstraction as well as greater detail with the aim of creating significant management reports from the raw, stored data.


Originally, the term "MIS" described applications providing managers with information about sales, inventories, and other data that would help in managing the enterprise. Over time, the term broadened to include: decision support systems, resource management and human resource management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), enterprise performance management (EPM), supply chain management (SCM), customer relationship management (CRM), project management and database retrieval applications.
[see more at wiki]

Not few number of schools among MBA colleges offer MIS course and here introduce top 10 MIS colleges. The ranking announced by US News Education Department.

TOP 10 MIS College Overview
MIT is positioned top of the list (MIT ranked #4 for MBA ranking) and CMU followed up (CMU is not in the TOP 10 MBA). Since both two  are top ranked schools in information sciences, it seems reasonable those schools are top ranked in MIS.

2013 Top 20 Public Colleges Tuition and Living Costs Comparison

The public colleges and universities are schools that are predominantly funded by public means through a national or state government. The public schools are typically operated under the supervision of state governments and are funded by tax and subsidies from the state (in part). As a result, these schools offer free or discounted tuition to students considered residents of the state, called in-state or in-district tuition rates. Non-state-residents are applied the out-of-state tuition rates and it is usually two or more times than in-state rates.

The discounted in-state tuition rate is attractive enough to captivate students and parents. In addition, many public schools have their proud history and are positioned highly in college ranking. In fact, there are many advantages to choose a public college rather than private college even though the private college (slightly) is high ranked.

Here, we introduce top 20 public colleges in US announced by USNEWS education department and compare tuition, fees, and living costs between them. For living costs, on-campus means that a student stays in dormitory or school owned rooms and off-campus means that a students stays in private rooms such as private apartments.

For year 2013, average In-State tuition of the top 20 public colleges is $10,391 and out-of-state rate is $ 30,505.  As you see in the table, several campuses of the University of California are included in the top 20 list. In fact, the University of California is considered as one of top public colleges. You may want to see the comparison between all UC campuses.

2013 Top 10 Graduate Computer Engineering Schools Tuition Costs

Engineering school is one of popular choice for graduate course and Computer Engineering is a major part of engineering school. Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software. Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software design, and hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture. [more at wiki]

USNEWS Department has announced the ranking for Graduate Compute Engineering  School. According to the ranking, MIT is on top of the list (MIT is also on the top of general graduate engineering school ranking) and UC Berkeley gets the second position. Methodology for the ranking is explained at Best Engineering Schools Rankings Methodology.

Next tables shows general information of the top 10 graduate computer engineering schools. 6 Schools are public and other 4 schools are private schools. Population means the total graduate engineering enrollment headcount.
