Abstract: The recent downturn in Information Systems enrollments and degrees granted has been a topic of interest in academia as well as industry. This downturn could negatively impact the future of the profession and negatively impact business in the 21st century, arguably still in the adolescence of the “Information Age.” This paper catalogs the issues and causes of these declines from recent articles and proposes action items to address these issues on a local scale.
Keywords: information systems education, declining enrollment, outsourcing of technology jobs, information systems careers
