Kuechler, William; McLeod, Alexander; Simkin, Mark G.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v20 n4 p407-418 Win 2009
The large increases in the number of IS majors about ten years ago have been matched by equally large decreases in IS enrollments over the last few years. The authors used a survey of over 200 students to answer the question "what can faculty do to attract more IS majors?" This paper reports our results and provides several specific suggestions for directed efforts. (Contains 1 figure and 10 tables.)
