Abstract: The MSIS 2000 model curriculum, prepared by the Joint ACM/AIS Curriculum Committee, provides guidelines for colleges and universities offering Masters degrees in Information Systems. This paper summarizes both the program and the procedures used to create it. In brief, the minimum masters program involves 10 courses for students with adequate preparation. This minimum program consists of 6 core course (data management; analysis, modeling, and design; data communications and networking: project and change management, information systems policy and strategy, and systems integration) and a 4-course career track. The procedure used included face-to-face and computer meetings among committee members and extensive consultation with the worldwide IS community.
