The management information systems curriculum at Christopher Newport University (CNU) initially developed by adding computer courses with a business emphasis to the traditional computer science/computer engineering programs. This initially appeared as an efficient approach to course delivery since many of the courses in the first two years could be shared. As the years passed the Business College faculty became convinced that management information systems was an independent discipline that should be integrated into the business management degree. This is the second article of a series which describes CNU's experience in implementing the DPMA four year model curriculum. This article discusses the curricular adjustments the institution made and the implementation of the first four courses of the Model Curriculum, including text selection, course content, and instructor and student reactions.
