Abstract: This article examines the relationship between ABET CAC standards for undergraduate programs of information systems and IS 2010 curriculum specifications. We have reviewed previous work that identifies course structures from accredited IS programs. In addition, the discontinuity observed in curriculum advancement over the years courses with IS 2010 provided background for comparison of required courses within IS 2010 and those of accredited programs. Also, we utilized survey of industry and government data to compare ABET/CAC expectations with IS 2010. A disconnect exists in comparing IS 2010 and ABET/CAC. It is suggested that new work is necessary to resolve these differences.
