IS 2010 Curriculum Guidelines

The IS 2010 report is the latest output from model curriculum work for Information Systems (IS) that began in the early 1970s. Prior to this current effort, the most recent version of the IS undergraduate model curriculum is IS 2002 (Gorgone et al., 2003), published in early 2003. IS 2002 was arelatively minor update of IS’97 (Davis et al., 1997). Both IS 2002 and IS ’97 were joint efforts by ACM, AIS, and DPMA/AITP (Data Processing Management Association/ Association of Information Technology Professionals). IS’97 was preceded by DPMA’90 (Longenecker and Feinstein 1991) and ACM Curriculum Recommendations 1983 (ACM 1983) and 1973 (Couger 1973). IS 2002 has been widely accepted and it hasalso been the basis for accreditation of undergraduate programs of Information Systems. This report represents the combined effort of numerous individuals and reflects the interests of thousands of faculty and practitioners. It is grounded in the expected requirements of industry, represents the views of organizations employing the graduates, and is supported by other IS-related organizations. Thisreport is one of the undergraduate curriculum volumes that have been produced for the core computing disciplines (see the CC2005 Overview Report; Shackelford 2005). In addition to IS 2010, curriculum recommendations exist for computer science (CS 2008), computer engineering (CE 2004), software engineering (SE 2004), and information technology (IT 2008) ( All of these reports are under the control of separate committees; updates are published as they are completed. All aspects of the global computing field continue to face rapid and frequent change. As a result, university-level Information Systems curricula need frequent updating to remain effective. Since most academic units have mechanisms to maintain currency of curricula, what is...
