Industry Expectations for Transforming IS Education—Discussion on AACSB MaCuDE IS Task Force Findings
The second webinar in a series of seminars organized by AIS and AACSB MaCuDE project’s IS task force provides the members of the IS community a preliminary overview of the findings of Stage II of the project. These findings highlight industry needs for big data and analytics based on interviews of around 25 big data / machine learning industry experts and leaders around the globe. The webinar offers also an opportunity for an in-depth discussion on the implications of these findings for future IS curricula. The seminar summarizes initial results of the in-depth interviews of industry experts and discusses some implications for future educational needs. Building on the key observations, the webinar welcomes the participants to join in a conversation to interpret the meaning of these findings for the IS discipline. The discussion will particularly focus on the role of advanced analytics and AI in future business school curricula and the ways in which developments in these areas of study and practice are impacting the field of IS in the business school context. The outcomes of the conversation will inform the MaCuDE IS task force’s Stage II report to this AACSB project as a whole. The seminar will also include commentary notes from some eminent industry experts. Please join us to help ensure that the voice of the AIS community is heard in this important discussion!
