Abstract

If academic institutions are to be responsive to changing student and industry requirements, they need to continually match their academic offerings with both market and student requirements. In recent years, universities throughout the world have experienced a serious decline in student enrolments in information systems and electronic commerce programmes. From existing literature as well as from empirical studies, this chapter explores the skills acquisition process of information systems students in order to match undergraduate and graduate perceptions of “hard” and “soft” skills requirements in the Internet Age.
