MBA programs have grown over the years to more than 70,000 graduates in 1989, with growth expected to continue in the foreseeable future. The growth is fueled by a number of changes including changes in business, an increasingly competitive world market, and rapid advances in technology. This paper discusses the impact of technology and suggests that MBA information systems programs are an appropriate way to address business computing needs. A program is presented that illustrates a flexible approach to satisfying the computing needs within this changing environment. The discussion addresses three career paths: a technical MIS track, crossover MIS track, and a functional end-user track. In concluding, it is suggested that DPMA continue its leadership in the curriculum area by addressing the difficult area of MBA MIS guidelines.
