Identifying Employer Needs from Accounting Information Systems Programs
Dillon, Thomas W.; Kruck, S. E.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v19 n4 p403-410 2008
As the need for new hires with accounting and information technology knowledge increases, a new major in accounting information systems (AIS) has emerged. This new AIS degree is a hybrid of accounting concepts and common business subjects combined with key information technology issues. Employers were presented with 56 core content areas found in the curriculum for the AIS major and asked to rate the importance of each. We present the results of the survey along with company demographics. Conclusions are then drawn to determine if the employers are hiring new employees with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to fill these employment trends. (Contains 6 tables and 1 figure.)
