Friends University has been ranked among the 20 most affordable online master’s degrees in management information systems online by Grad School Hub. Friends University is ranked No. 18 in the nation and is the only Kansas college in the top 20.
A list of 139 four-year, nonprofit universities offering advanced degrees related to computer and information systems management via distance learning was compiled using the National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator database. Only colleges with acceptable accreditation(s) and with an in-state graduate tuition cost of $11,000 per year or less were considered. The top 20 online master’s in management information systems were then ranked based on affordability.
“First offered at Friends University in 1990, the master of management information systems program is one of our many outstanding graduate programs,” said Dr. Jasper Lesage, vice president of academic affairs at Friends University. “Designed for busy adult students, our program equips students with the technical and business skills they need to succeed in either traditional or emerging careers in information systems.”
The Master of Management Information Systems, offered in Wichita and online, is a professional degree designed to provide students with the technical and business skills to advance their careers in information systems. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, computer and information systems managers’ employment is expected to increase 12 percent from 2016 to 2026, faster than the average for all occupations.
