These challenges, as well as the increase of global economy, coupled with the demand for the business technology workers indicate the need for redesigning the Information System Curriculum. The proposed framework for an Information Technology (IT) Program in this paper offers a pragmatic curriculum model to accommodate the needs and challenges of the 21st century. The framework provides a fundamental IT education for the graduates of such a curriculum, as well as allowing an area of specialization. In addition, the program can be implemented easily with existing resources.
