Study: Salary increases, job growth abound in Information Systems field

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Students who earn degrees in Information Systems (IS) earn higher starting salaries than fellow business-school counterparts. Additionally, IS students benefit from one of the strongest national placement averages.

These statistics are just some of the findings from the latest edition of the Information Systems Job Index, produced by researchers from Temple University's Fox School of Business, in partnership with the Association for Information Systems (AIS).

Published and released in January 2018, the third installment of the IS Job Index culled the responses of 2,140 IS graduates of the Class of 2017, from 58 universities nationwide.

Some of the index's more-interesting findings include:

  • Salaries for IS undergraduates ($62,820) are the highest among students who pursue typical business majors ($52,047).
  • The percentage of women in IS jobs (39 percent) is more than double that of women in other STEM fields like computer science (18 percent).
  • Internships double the likelihood of an IS student getting a job offer (39 percent for those who hold at least one internship vs. 16 percent for those who do not).
  • More than 74 percent of IS undergraduates earn job placement upon graduation, as compared with the 49 percent cumulative national average.

"There are more than 3 million IS jobs in the U.S. alone," said index co-author Dr. Munir Mandviwalla, Associate Professor of Management Information Systems (MIS) at Temple University's Fox School of Business. "This data is critical for parents of college-age children, current and prospective students seeking an accurate job outlook, employers, and policymakers — and it cannot be found anywhere else."

Mandviwalla conducted research for the latest installment of the IS Job Index and co-authored it with Dr. Crystal Harold, Associate Professor of Human Resource Management at Temple's Fox School of Business, and Maria Boggi, a junior MIS major in the Fox School and Temple University Honor's programs.

The AIS-Temple Fox School Job Index is the only systematic assessment of the IS job market. It is a joint project, with support from AmerisourceBergen and LiquidHub, to produce reliable national-level data on placement, job type, satisfaction, and related factors like career services, knowledge level, preparedness, and search strategies.
