Recent research has highlighted a mismatch between the skills taught to Information Systems undergraduates in universities and the skills needed by businesses, the disparity leading to employers recruiting graduates from arts and science courses. This paper will present findings on research that has been conducted to obtain the views of employers and recent graduates on the importance and relevance of key knowledge and skills in Information Systems Education, in an attempt to determine whether Information Systems courses are effective, and whether there is a need to develop new programmes to meet the needs of tomorrow’s organisations.
