IS'2001: Progress Report on Updating IS'97
We discuss the updating process for the IS'97 IS curriculum guidelines and accreditation, the first pilot visit to occur this fall. Course descriptions for the proposed IS'2001 curriculum are provided with a description of scope and a high-level set of topics for each course. Lastly, the primary conclusions of a research survey based on IS'97 is presented. It is noteworthy that IS faculty primarily train IS analysts who have demonstrated expertise in database applications, their skill set matches the expectations of the computing industry, the skill areas of IT programs match the expectation of IS faculty, and model courses P0, 1 and 2 could be revised.
Keywords: information systems, model curriculum, IS education, IS'97
