ABSTRACT
The purpose of this research is to test the impact of the graduate IT orientation courses, both on the student body and the faculty. The project surveyed the manner of delivery of "IT Basics" on graduate courses in three different "trend-setting" universities in Iran to uncover any shifts or development in training philosophy. Course delivery was analyzed from the standpoint of content, course requirements, instructor/students expectations, as well as instruction style. The comparison aimed to test the impact of the IT orientation courses, both on the student body and the faculty. The paper will outline the differences in student cohort (social and ethnic background), the courses and the staff and students attitude to the courses.
