AIS and ACM recently set up a task force for the revision of MSIS 2006 - the master’s level curriculum recommendation in information systems – MSIS 2016. The revision is justified by the challenges posed to the IS field by the networked society: emergence of new configurations of information technology; new demands from enterprises, markets and society; evolving professional practices; unfolding research questions.
The panel will allow the involvement of the IS community in the debate of major issues regarding graduate IS education in the broader context of educating professionals for the networked society. The panelists choice aims at providing perspectives on IS graduate education from different European areas. Besides opening the floor to the viewpoint of practitioners, attention will also be paid to the developments, occurring in Europe, regarding the competences in information and communication technologies demanded in the modern workplace.
