Master course with many sections or duplicate the course for each new class start?

At our school we have a consistent linear curriculum of 3 semesters, 2 courses per semester.  Every student takes the same courses in the same order.  Is it better to have a master course and create a new section for each new cohort start, or duplicate the course every time a new cohort start occurs.  The courses usually have different instructors for each cohort.  Our SIS seems to be pushing us toward sections and I am unsure if this is the function of a course section.
