Abstract: This paper presents findings of an empirical investigation of the state of expert systems (ES) curriculum development in the 279 business schools accredited by the American Association of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). One objective of this study was to determine the extent to which the introductory undergraduate ES course is being taught. A second objective was to obtain a profile of how ES is being taught. A questionnaire was developed to survey Information Systems (IS) faculty; the response rate was 41%. It was found that 48% of the schools offer an introductory undergraduate ES course. Additional highlights of the findIngs Include: 44% of the schools have an ES component as part of other business courses; one or more graduate level ES courses are offered at 45% of the business schools; at 46% of the universities an ES course is offered outside of the business school.
