This article presents the results of research that gathered data about undergraduate information systems curricula and compared it to previous studies and the IS 2009 working model curriculum which is now named IS 2010 Model Curriculum after final approval. Data was collected from the websites of 240 colleges and universities identified as having information systems programs in colleges of business. The results indicate that although a core set of courses continues to be offered at schools, IS curricula continues to evolve but does not always match current curriculum models.
