Do IS Curricular Guidelines Match Employer Expectations in Swedish IS Job Ads?

Abstract

This study examines whether the IS 2010 Curriculum Guidelines and IS2020 Competency Model match employer expectations in Sweden. This is done by content analysis of 12 358 IS job advertisements, focusing on occupations, dispositions, technical skills, architecture, and the importance of programming. We find that: 1. The occupation group of ICT System Administration is much more important than in the IS 2010 and the IS2020 reports; 2. Enterprise Architecture is important in the ads and in the IS 2010 but not in the IS2020 report; 3. The most important personal dispositions in the ads are more important than in the IS 2010 and IS2020 reports; 4. Overall programming skills are important, but with less depth and extension than the IS2020 report specifies. 5. The IS2020 report’s technical stance over a more business-focused one is only partly supported. These differences might reflect the pre-dominantly US perspectives underlying the curricular guidelines.
