How is DePaul University's Reputation?

I'm in my senior year of college for my bachelors degree and I've been thinking about going for a Masters degree in Computer, Information, & Network Security from DePaul University. I have options to do my coursework online (which I like) and I hear they have a sterling reputation.

Tuition is very pricy so if I decide to apply and enroll there, I want to be sure I can have a job ready for me when I graduate. Is the school as great and notable as everyone says?

    DePaul is respected. It is a school that is loaded with alumni members.Here is some information about their computer science program. At the 2006 ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, in which over 5,600 teams representing 1,733 universities from 84 countries competed, DePaul placed 29th, one of three U.S. universities in the top 30 (MIT placed 7th, Princeton placed 28th). CDM is a recognized national leader in computer network security and information assurance education, according to a designation bestowed by the National Security Agency and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. DePaul was named as a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance by the two agencies in early 2005. CDM was one of only six schools nationwide (and the only Midwestern university) selected by Sony Pictures Imageworks to take part in the inaugural Imageworks Professional Academic Excellence (IPAX) program. The program is a collaboration to educate faculty and structure curricula in an effort to develop future artists, designers, animators and engineers who will help the visual effects industry to grow.

    In 2005 DePaul became the first Liberal Arts university in the US to offer a Bachelors degree in Computer Games Development, and in 2008 named Eugene Jarvis their first Game Designer in Residence. Their video Game Design was one of five schools featured in Electronic Gaming Monthly June 2011 issue. The other schools included MIT, USC, and University of Utah.

    Please remember that Kerrie L. Holley, The Chief Architect of IBM Global Services and IBM Distinguished Engineer; IBM Black Engineer of the Year Award Recipient 2003 is from DePaul.
