The purpose of this study is to assess the perceptions of recent alumni on how well a curriculum that combines operations management and information systems prepared them for the workforce. To address our research question, a web-based survey was developed. Our findings seem to indicate that the more recent graduates in our department felt the most adequately prepared for both general business and technical skills. This may mean that our department is continually improving their curriculum over time. Overall, students felt at least moderately prepared for most of the specific skills we studied. Our methodology can be broadly applied to any department that combines operations management and information systems that is concerned with curriculum assessment.
