Abstract

This paper surveys professional corporate practitioners who are involved in the management aspects of the Information Technology field.

A questionnaire was administered to selected corporate members of the Association of Information Technology Professionals (AITP) and the Pittsburgh Technology Council (PTC). A matrix was constructed that identifies the key technological skills considered essential to higher education curricular offerings in Information Technology.
