This study examines the adoption of the most recent Information Systems (IS) curriculum guidelines (also referred to as the IS 2010 curriculum model) across IS programs in American universities. In particular, this study focuses on adherence to the sequence of suggested core courses. Data for this study was collected from 314 IS programs in both AACSB and ABET-accredited institutions in the United States. Majority of the IS programs in the United States are fully compliant with the core course sequence recommended by the IS 2010 guideline. Adherence to the core course curriculum sequence was observed to be higher in public institutions compared to private institutions; and higher in AACSB accredited institutions compared to ABET-accredited institutions. However, no difference was found between institutions that conferred BBA compared to BS degrees for there IS programs. Implications are discussed throughout the paper.
