Abstract

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