The joint ACM/AIS MSIS 2016 task force has released a revised comprehensive draft of MSIS 2016 for evaluation and comments. You are also welcome to review our continuously updated feedback and response document.
The purpose of this site is to provide general information about the MSIS 2016 revision process and to solicit feedback from Information Systems and general computing communities regarding the deliverables of the joint ACM/AIS MSIS 2016 task force and the project in general.
The purpose of this revision process is to carefully review the MSIS 2006 curriculum recommendation and revise it so that it can provide up-to-date guidance to schools, departments, and individual faculty members designing master’s level curricula and courses in Information Systems.
The MSIS 2016 revision process was formally launched in December 2014 / January 2015 after a preliminary review task force had recommended this action to ACM and AIS in August 2013, both organizations had decided to include it in their budgets for the 2014-2017 fiscal years, and the task force had been named in 2014 through an open call to the IS community. The task force released its first public deliverable in June 2015, the second one in March 2016, and a comprehensive MSIS 2016 draft in July 2016.
