Description The PhD Program in MIS in terms of its reputation, research record and research grants received, stands at the top of Canadian business schools and at the very top rank in the international arena. A recent assessment of research productivity showed that the UBC MIS program ranks 6th in the world among public universities, and 9th overall, in terms of publications in top MIS journals. Graduates have academic positions in Canada, the USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. Students work closely with faculty and other students in a stimulating intellectual environment to create outstanding research. An active group of senior and junior academics is the distinguishing feature of the MIS faculty at UBC. These researchers investigate a wide variety of topics, including systems analysis, databases, telecommunications, electronic commerce, economics of information systems, intelligent systems, strategic and organizational issues, and planning for MIS. Their methods include laboratory experiments, field studies, survey methods, econometrics, modelling, and computational simulation. This rich portfolio of topics and research methods allows substantial flexibility for PhD students in selecting a research topic.
