    Profile Evaluation MIS


    I also have a very similar profile,
    GRE 322
    TOEFL 111
    4.5 years of IT experience in TCS, Tibco, IBM
    Graduation: 80%
    Training in Appin Knowledge Solutions in Embedded systems and in Doordarshan during summer breaks.

    I have short listed following univ:
    1. CMU
    2. TAMU
    3. Univ of Washington
    4. Univ of Cincinnati
    5. Indiana Univ
    5. Univ at Buffalo - Not very preferable as it is not STEM and placement is not 100%

    Don't have much idea about scholarships/TA/GA chances. I also need info about the same.

    Please let me know if following univ should be kept in list:
    1. Univ of Minnesota twin cities (here it is not MIS , it is MS in business analytics)
    2. Univ of Houston clear lake
    3. Duke Univ (here MIS is not there, MEM is present)

    Can someone let me know if MEM and MS in Business Analytics have good placements in these colleges??

    IF u guys are looking for MS in business analytics than forget funding/TA/RA

    Most courses have classes morning to evening 5 days a week and they doesnt allow on campus either cos of tight schedule.

    Best would be North carolina state university whose placements are competing harvards MBA grads
    2nd would be University of texas Austin. same type as NCSU
    3rd best would be LSU.
    All three are only 1 year program and cant be extended furthur.

    they all have bombshell of a placement.

    If u want the usual 3/4 class a week type schedule u need to look at MIS program but packages offered are less with lesser growth cos they are not pure Business analysis course.
    Some universities do have MS in BA with options to choose to courses (Uconn etc.) and placement are good as Analytics is a booming field but not as good as the 3 mentioned above.
