The results of a survey of Hong Kong employers concerning the knowledge and skills of IS graduates are presented. In the survey, both the needed and actual levels of knowledge and skills together with their perceived importance are rated by IT managers and professionals in Hong Kong. Differences between needed and actual levels for important IT knowledge and skills are analyzed and serve as guidelines for improvement in IS education in Hong Kong. Results are also compared with similar surveys conducted on IS graduates in Taiwan and the U.S.
