Zicklin Ranked Third Nationwide for Women in IS
The Chronicle of Higher Education ranked the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College third among 253 institutions nationwide for enrolling and graduating women in computer science and information systems. The percentage of female CIS undergrads at Zicklin has continuously increased over the last few years, from 21.6 percent in 2016 to 32.2 percent in 2019.
“The Paul H. Chook Department of Information Systems and Statistics has supported the creation of a student club, FemCode, that focuses on women in tech; we have made efforts to attract more female professors, both full time and adjunct; and we are working to increase the participation of women in computing and IT,” said Marios Koufaris, Ph.D., chair of the Paul H. Chook Department of Information Systems and Statistics.
In addition to the CIS major for undergraduates, Zicklin offers a Master of Science in Information Systems as well as a newly launched MS in Business Analytics and an Executive MS in Information Systems. The Zicklin School of Business leads the way in enrolling and graduating women in computer science and information systems—well-paying fields in which women have long been underrepresented.
