Refocusing the IS Curriculum: An Industry Perspective.
Case, Thomas; Dick, Geoffrey
The emergence of information age organization structures challenges information systems (IS) educators to refocus IS curricula and to increase emphasis on topics that they predict to be especially important to organizations that adopt information age structures. These topics fall into four general categories: specific information technologies; application development; database systems; and information resource management. A survey instrument was designed to assess business manager/professional perceptions of the emergence of information age organization structures and to identify topical areas perceived to be important. The population was students in the Master of Business and Technology program at the University of New South Wales (Australia) Results suggest that business managers and professionals agree that emerging information age organization structures are also having an impact on business management practices and challenges. Curriculum implications for IS educators are discussed. (Contains 11 references.) (AEF)
