Information Systems (IS) have, over the past decades, become increasingly important in the corporate and public sectors throughout the developed world. This will continue in the future at an even greater pace of change as information technology revolutionises the administration, planning and marketing of business and industry. The impact of information technology and IS is increasingly felt in developing nations such as those in South-east Asia. In order to leapfrog in their use of new technology the developing Asian nations must be able to produce their own IS personnel. The objective of this study is to develop a model curriculum suitable for implementation in tertiary institutions in such developing nadons.
