Purpose – Discusses a detailed methodology for defining and evaluating content for an undergraduate program. Design/methodology/approach – The author uses his own experiences and those of tutors and students to construct the methodology and analyze its success. Findings – With no official accreditation agency in place, it becomes increasingly difficult to assess the value of the content of undergraduate programs in the USA. Those tasked with defining, planning and drafting course content are faced with the unenviable burden of creating a program which meets the needs not only of the students studying the programs, but also of the organizations which will become the future employers of these students. Practical implications – Provides content and structure for future undergraduate programs. Originality/value – Saves tutors and content providers hours of planning and preparation time by providing a detailed methodology of how to define and plan content for undergraduate programs.
