Electronic commerce is an emerging business environment that provides common business services, multimedia content publishing and secure interactive web sites by integrating back-end and front-end applications. The necessary electronic commerce infrastructure is provided by integrating information and telecommunication technologies, the Internet and the World Wide Web, and business models that incorporate security, privacy, and legal issues. Electronic commerce lets companies reach new markets, operate around the clock, shorten the product-development cycle, enhance customer service, reduce or eliminate inventory related costs, and create enterprise links – all at lower costs. The phenomenal growth in online commerce increases the demand for people with skills in areas such as electronic commerce infrastructure, new business initiatives, law and security, electronic payment, financial services, and interactive marketing. The program below develops the knowledge and skills necessary for linked organizations in the new millennium.
