Abstract

Today, it is common to find Information Systems (IS) subjects being taught at undergraduate and graduate levels in business schools. However, we observed that business students generally think that IS subjects are not relevant to their studies, hence reducing their interest in the development, implementation and management of information systems. This phenomenon prompts us to ask some questions: Are we delivering the right IS content to the business students? If we are not, then which of the IS topics are considered important or have high perceived value among the business students? What changes should be made to the existing IS syllabuses and curriculum? The purpose of this research is to examine, from the perspective of business students, the IS topics that are considered important or have high perceived value. The findings of the research provide a strong foundation in designing the syllabus of IS subjects offered by business schools.
