Masters degrees in E-Business equip postgraduates with a working knowledge of the functionality, organisation and economic principals of E-business practices.
Taught MSc courses are typical for this field, but professional MBA programmes are also available. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Business, or relevant work experience in some cases.
A Masters in this field is often highly interdisciplinary, accumulating topics draw from subjects such as economics, computational finance, business management and computer sciences.
You will typically analyse business strategies in relation to computer systems such as the internet, including e-commerce and online management techniques. In particular, you will explore strategic management for the development of E-Business based organisations, and apply systems integration to the design of products and services through market analysis.
Careers may include the direct management of an organisation’s established E-Business ventures, either as an executive manager, financial director or industrial analyst. Alternatively, you could work for a company which assists the start-up of E-business for different corporations in both the public and private sectors. This could include for example retail, banking or other online public services.
