Abstract :

Only a strong interaction of people, information and technology can improve business performance. The Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the new age has to be a 'hybrid' business and information systems manager who can play a major role in strategy formulation for effective use of information technology, who does not neglect the human side of the information equation, and who does not forget that information has to be managed like any other resource and thus puts the 'I' back in the 'IT'. This leads to new aspects of what kind of competencies and skills a CIO, a 'hybrid' business and information systems manager, must have. In the paper a recently developed Information Systems Management under- and post-graduate curriculum is verified whether it sustains sufficient degree of relevancy to the needs of present-day business community. This analysis can serve as a guideline when building, revising and endorsing contemporary and relevant curricula for similar educational programs. Keywords: business-information systems, information management, education curriculum, information orientation, IT productivity paradox
