Accreditation is a major issue for Mexican universities. As of February 2009 there were 48 technology-related programs at 31 universities accredited in Mexico, 14 of them in Information Systems (IS). This paper describes some experiences in redesigning an IS program for accreditation purposes that can be helpful to other programs that are thinking about starting an accreditation initiative. This paper describes the four profiles defined by accreditation bodies and compares them to what programs in institutions around the world are teaching.
