CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT IN THE STUDIES OF MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEMS

J. Martinavicius, R. Skyrius

Vilnius university (LITHUANIA)
The importance of high competencies in the sector of management information systems (MIS) is evident from the demand of qualified employees, attention to MIS studies in academic and professional sources, and fast developments in applications of information technologies (IT) in management. On one hand, the changing technology landscape forces to constantly reevaluate the existing practices in executing study programs in the MIS field to avoid obsolete study content. At the same time, we may note a constant search for long-term values that provide solid foundations for future study activities. One of the possible approaches is to examine the perceptions of the students regarding the expected and actual competencies that MIS study programs are expected to build.

The analysis of collected data on pre-study level of preparation, study grades, data from student surveys on self-evaluation of acquired competencies and satisfaction with study program, has to show whether objective and subjective perceptions of study program have significant differences. A block of data collected on several cohorts of students enrolled in a same program is analyzed using methods of descriptive statistics, and correlations between the above named features are estimated.

This study aims at the analysis and estimation of relationships between the above listed features of the study process, including data changes of these relationships over time. Such relationships are driving the reviews of study program content and structure, and have been used in more efficient management and improvement of the quality of MIS study process.
