Abstract The demand for, and sophistication of Enterprise Architecture (EA) has grown significantly in recent years. This paper aims to better understand industry¿s expectations of enterprise architects and to help university educators design curricula to meet these needs. In this study, we conduct interviews with enterprise architects and identify the skills sets important to their role. We also examine the curricula of architecture-related courses and programs in Australia and New Zealand. Our review reveals that, disappointingly, less than one-third of universities in these countries offer architecture-related courses and/or programs. We identify the shared visions and the gaps between practitioners and academia. This paper also proposes a curriculum for a Master of Enterprise Architecture program.
