Business Process Management (BPM) certification is a relatively new area in the Business Schools and other similar academic units and it appeared in the curriculum about a decade ago. Industry stakeholders and a small number of higher education institutions have provided professional training and certification in this area since the 1990’s. As more colleges and professional organizations develop courses, certificates, and programs in the BPM area, we hope to continue the dialogue between the academic and professional organizations to look at similarities and differences that may exist among the proposed BPM Common Body of Knowledge and guidelines proposed by professional organizations and existing academic IS model curriculum. This paper examines incorporating the BPM Common Body of Knowledge developed by the Association of Business Process Management Professionals, a leading BPM professional organization, in the MSIS model curriculum. The paper also identifies the gaps that exist in the MSIS model curriculum to cover the BPM Common Body of Knowledge.
