The Management Information Systems (MIS) degree has evolved over the years however it has yet another evolution to occur in its curriculum. Institutions need to create programs that address global issues such as Open Source Software (OSS), globalization, emerging media, virtualization, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. The MIS degree has been thought of as a managerial degree within technology. For the MIS degree to be successful a better blend on management and technical skill competency needs to occur. Currently the view within various communities is that the MIS does not provide enough technical capabilities to go beyond that of an analyst. Thus the goal is to create a curriculum that allows a graduate to become a manager or grow into a technical Subject Matter Expert (SME) in their chosen specialization. The core courses shall be in specific advance areas of science, technology, and management science courses rather than a blend of everything. The specialization courses shall represent current trends for industry needs and those not yet present which allow the university to quickly adapt needed changes into degree curriculum.

Creating the mis degree of the future

  1. 1. Abstract 0 The Management Information Systems (MIS) degree has evolved over the years however it has yet another evolution to occur in its curriculum. Institutions need to create programs that address global issues such as Open Source Software (OSS), globalization, emerging media, virtualization, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. The MIS degree has been thought of as a managerial degree within technology. For the MIS degree to be successful a better blend on management and technical skill competency needs to occur. Currently the view within various communities is that the MIS does not provide enough technical capabilities to go beyond that of an analyst. Thus the goal is to create a curriculum that allows a graduate to become a manager or grow into a technical Subject Matter Expert (SME) in their chosen specialization. The core courses shall be in specific advance areas of science, technology, and management science courses rather than a blend of everything. The specialization courses shall represent current trends for industry needs and those not yet present which allow the university to quickly adapt needed changes into degree curriculum.
