Much has happened in the field of Information Technology since 2008 when ACM published its curriculum recommendation for a four year Undergraduate Degree Program in Information Technology. We show an alternative path reflecting what we consider presently requested by the industry and students alike. In this paper we look at the topics from a holistic point of view, not just as traditional machine learning Computer Science courses. We make an argument for widening the scope from machine learning theory, towards analytical service development. We give our proposal of a refined IT curriculum that can be used by other institutions for refining their curriculums.
