Abstract

The needs of the business community are always changing. The goal of this study is to determine what those needs are and develop a curriculum that satisfies to those needs. To gather the information needed, we created an online survey and asked employers of operations management and information systems majors to complete the survey. The survey consisted of questions about their company, education and the importance of different courses. Many of the courses the business community felt were important were courses that had a combination of OM and IS. To meet the business communities needs we suggest that NIU develop a course in business forecasting and offer a separate course on project management. These changes will help keep the curriculum relevant so that employers desire NIU graduates.
