IS Curriculum, Education and Teaching Cases


As increasing number of organizations are embracing Business Process Management (BPM), the need for including it in business school curriculum is ever-growing. In particular IS (Information Systems) programs face this challenge even more because of potential new skill sets that its graduates require to compete in the changing job market. While some of the programs in business schools have stood up to take the challenge, there are many who are yet to follow suit. In this respect, we discuss how different aspects of BPM are relevant to various organizational functions, and their subsequent impact on business school curriculum; especially IS programs. We provide a brief assessment of the relevance of BPM with different IS courses and present a proposed course content that can possibly be included in a graduate/undergraduate BPM course.
