KGSB's info technology program ranked in top 10

Pitt's Katz Graduate School of Business ranked in the top 10 in two recent surveys of business schools' information technology (IT) programs.

The Financial Times survey covered 106 schools worldwide and was based on more than 5,000 questionnaire responses. In the category of IT, Katz ranked among the top 10 such programs in the nation.

Others in the top 10 included University of California at Irvine, University of Texas, Austin, and Carnegie Mellon University.

In a survey to be published by the Academy of Management, a group of business school chairs measured the amount of academic research published in 20 "top tier" business research journals. Katz ranked No. 8 out of 100 schools surveyed in information technology.

Other top 10 schools included the University of Minnesota, MIT and Carnegie Mellon.

Katz Dean Rick Winter said, "Our place in these rankings shows how innovative Katz's research and teaching is considered to be across the board — in the minds of our alumni as well as our peers."

Katz was one of only four schools to rank in both surveys in the top 10.
