Trends and Projections of IS/MAS Faculty and Courses
Terry L. Campbell
The impact of technology has had and will continue to have a major impact
on accounting education. This paper reports on survey results from 77
schools regarding their IS/MAS faculty and courses. Delineations are made
among the respondents regarding their accreditation status into three
categories: non-accredited, business-accredited, and accounting-accredited.
Accounting-accredited institutions have a higher number of full-time accounting
faculty teaching a greater number of 1S courses and are expecting to employ
more 1S faculty to teach additional IS courses than the non-accredited
and business-accredited institutions. Accounting doctoral directors were
surveyed to determine the number of IS/MAS programs and doctoral candidates;
the results appear to indicate that the IS/MAS faculty shortage is likely
to continue into the next decade.
