InSITE 2006 • Volume 6 • 2006
The information systems marketplace is changing rapidly requiring students to be well versed in skills that go beyond traditional IT skills. To achieve this, management information systems (MIS) instructors in MIS programs across the country need to design courses that reflect these changes. Failure to incorporate these changes in the MIS program will lead to graduating MIS students who are not competitive in the marketplace. While curriculum changes are often times a time consuming process, the capstone course in an MIS program can be used effectively to reflect these changes. This paper highlights different strategies that can be used in a capstone MIS course to help students synthesize, analyze, and apply knowledge acquired over different courses in the program.
