Sammanfattning

Commentators on Information Systems (IS) education have urged the IS community to develop
new and alternative IS curricula. The IS 2002 model curriculum has recently been revised.
The new IS 2010 curriculum guidelines for undergraduate degree programs in Information Systems
Topi et al. 2010 has a curriculum structure to accommodate the education of several different
professional roles within IS. This paper identifies one such role, the Business Information
Systems Designer. It presents and argues for a new, integrated Bachelor of Science curriculum
for Business Information Systems Design (BISD 2010) to educate for this role. The proposed
curriculum focuses on the design and use of IS in business and has a strong design focus. The
education focuses on developing and training a set of capabilities that enables the Business Information
Systems Designer to participate in the design of business and IS in concert. Some
examples of capabilities are communication and presentation skills, business and industry understanding,
and high-level modeling. Consequently, the curriculum adopted a capabilities-driven
pedagogical model in order to train specific skills. The paper presents the BISD 2010 with its
specific expected learning outcomes, structure, and pedagogy, and also how the students should be
able to fulfill the learning outcomes. The proposed curriculum differs from much of the current IS
model curriculum discussions in a number of respects: (1) it is built on a notion of design, design
science, and design as a profession, (2) it is based on a capability driven pedagogical model, (3)
the curriculum is modeled for a European higher education context and the Bologna accord, and
(4) it is not a model curriculum, but a specific, comprehensive, and ambitious curriculum for a
degree program.
