Abstract

In the light of technological changes, changes in business contexts, decreased number of IS students, changes in educational systems, etc., IS education commentators have urged the IS community to develop new and alternative IS curricula. In response to this, we present a model curriculum for a Bachelor of Science program in business information systems design (BISD 2007). The curriculum has a strong design focus. Students should after completing the program have specified business information systems design capabilities; hence, the program is capabilities-driven. This chapter presents the general rationales for the program as well as the specific program design rationales. The program is presented with expected learning outcomes and how the students should be able to fulfil the outcomes. In addition, we discuss the organizational impacts of a new and innovative program.
