Purpose

Findings
- The paper finds that there is a need for exchange of perspectives and skills between information science and information management students which can be mutually beneficial and add value to their skill set.
Practical implications
- In terms of curriculum design for information professional education, information systems students need a strong background in the business and user environment to leverage the technologies for business value.
Originality/value
- The paper presents a case study of practice with a commentary on the dynamics of teaching the theme.
