Electronic commerce, often shortened to e-commerce, includes a wide range of business and computer topics including electronic commerce software, electronic commerce infrastructure, electronic commerce security issues, electronic commerce financial transactions, and electronic commerce business strategies. Electronic commerce also requires knowledge in areas of international, legal, ethics, tax issues, project planning, and management issues.
The Electronic Commerce Specialist Certificate program prepares students for job entry in e-commerce management and development fields. Students learn skills necessary for design, development, maintenance, management, and administration of e-commerce efforts for corporations and organizations. This certificate program prepares graduates for jobs as electronic commerce specialists, consultants, and manager-trainees. A required internship (CIS 1942) allows students to obtain "on-the-job" work experience in e-commerce technologies.
