There has been significant recent activity related to model undergraduate curricula in information systems and suggestions for curricular improvement in content and pedagogy. Although these major efforts were modeled within the context of the North American university degree program structures, they are useful for consideration in curricular design in other systems as well. Two major studies were the recent report for undergraduate degree programs in information systems (IS’97, available on the CD- ROM containing these Proceedings) and the soon to be published NSF funded study: ISCC’99 (Educating the Next Generation of Information Specialists in Collaboration with Industry). This panel addresses the related issue of a Master’s degree program in information systems.
