When students return from studying abroad they often find that it is more difficult than they anticipated weaving themselves back into their native culture. With the emphasis on implementing Information Systems in developing countries it is imperative that the knowledge learned abroad is used within the home country. For this research-in-progress, we propose that the psychological theory of acculturation can be used to explain IS-specific difficulties experienced by IS student sojourners as they repatriate to the home countries after studying abroad.
