Tufts vs John hopkins

I am considering Masters in Computer science either at Tufts or John Hopkins. Which one is more highly regarded among employers?

    It seems it depends on who you ask. For the doctoral programs (which may influence MS program perception as well), CSrankings ranks Johns Hopkins above Tufts. U.S. News also ranks JHU (#25) above Tufts #75). The National Research Council ranks Tufts above Johns Hopkins. (NRC's rankings are older, though.)

    Rankings don't always perfectly overlap with what employers highly regard. Some of that is based on regional preference and location, some based on the hiring manager's personal experience with grads of specific schools. Since who you know plays a big role in recruiting and hiring, some teams/companies may develop clusters of hires from particular schools.
