There is much discord and contradiction in academia amongst those who teach on Information System Programmes. Much of the argument is based upon content and structure. This paper argues against having a static or singular centering, or anchoring, structure to an IS degree. Results from early report findings, based upon student feedback, suggest there is a need for an Information System curriculum to engage both students and industry as stakeholders. This engagement should ensure a relevant Programme once reflection and evaluation is considered on a continuous basis. Combined with a sound pedagogy, this continual reflection and regular industrial engagement will ensure relevant IS courses are being taught negating the need for a ‘one size fits all’ approach to IS education.
