Abstract: This research examines the literature regarding COBOL and reports on a survey sent to MIS/CIS department chairs of AACSB colleges of business within the United States. The survey measured faculty attitudes regarding COBOL, identified the status of COBOL in the curriculum and identified what other programming languages are being taught. Results indicate that COBOL still plays an important role in the curriculum. However, Microsoft's Visual Basic has taken the lead in the programming curriculum.
