Despite the fact that Information Systems as a profession was given in some advanced countries since some decades ago, the field is too young in our country. The government of Ethiopia is now desperately embarking on the introduction and expansion of the ICT sector as a tool for the country’s development. Therefore, to get what is expected from the sector, having well trained Information Systems professional on the Information Systems discipline is believed as a core activity.
Until recent years, there were no institutions that train Information Systems professionals except Addis Ababa University, which had launched the Information Systems program in 2002 at B.Sc level. Currently, the program is being offered by some private institutions in addition to the government owned universities.
