E-Business Certificate (No longer accepting new applications)

A new model for business (e-Business) is taking shape that is built on the world's largest communications network, the Internet. The Internet has opened up new possibilities for organizing and running a business and is changing the way businesses transact goods and services. The Internet creates a global platform for buying and selling goods and is used for redesigning business processes within organizations. As businesses invest in the commercialization of the Internet/WWW, there is an enormous need from a variety of fronts to understand the implications for strategic initiatives, marketing and advertising, financial markets, information systems strategy, human resource management, supply chain management and legal issues. A certificate program in e-Business is designed for students to learn how organizations can use Internet technology to create new business opportunities and how they can transform an existing business into an e-Business.

New students may indicate on their online application for admission that they would like to be considered for an assistantship. Current students must contact the academic department for application information. Each department may have different requirements for assistantship applicants, so all students should contact the academic department to determine these particular requirements.

Students admitted as non-degree seeking or to a certificate program may not hold an assistantship.
