Since its beginnings, the growth and development of the information systems and technology (IS&T) industry has been limited and shaped by the availability of sufficient numbers of skilled technical and professional workers. Information Systems and Technology Education: From the University to the Workplace presents a complete, global view of the human dynamics of education, supply, demand, and career development in the IS&T industry.

This authoritative collection exhibits a range of cultural and stakeholder perspectives, focusing on the profession, the professionals, students, and new graduates, as well as the common issues and challenges ahead for the industry and for those entering and already working in IS&T. This comprehensive reference work provides libraries with a consolidated source of the best research to help all stakeholders understand and meet the challenges of improving integration between technology education and the needs of the industry and everyone it affects.
