After the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) adopted new accreditation standards in April, 1991, some business schools revised curricula to integrate core areas and pursued cross- functional content delivery. (AACSB, 1991, 1993) The implementation of curriculum integration across functions is complex and requires concerted effort from faculty. One opportunity to provide a significant cross-functional experience for students materialized in an End User Computing (EUC) course in which the students developed a Decision Support System (DSS) for small businesses considering adoption of a Cafeteria Plan benefits package.
