Graduate programs in information systems are gaining in popularity, partly because of the demand for professionals with expertise to work with electronic commerce and on the web, solve the Y2K problems, and implement enterprise software. A newly established graduate degree program at a large regional midwestern university has seen increased interest from students and companies because of the SAP R/3 initiative undertaken by the College of Business Administration. The MIS faculty are interested in offering a graduate program that fosters traditional educational goals as well as provides graduates with good jobs. This paper also evaluates the program within the recommendations of the joint ACM/AIS task force on the status of graduate IS curriculum.
