An Analysis of the e-Business Program in the School of Business Curriculum
Sarkar, Shyamalendu; Reddy, Surender
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v4 n1 p107-112 Jan 2007
The article analyzes various present and future aspects of e-business as it is or should be incorporated in the school of business curriculum. The study uses both primary and secondary data. The results indicate that e-business courses are currently taught across the traditional disciplines of business schools. The courses are primarily taught as independent electives or as part of a regular course. The faculty preference for the future of e-business courses seems to be in the same direction, maybe even more extreme. Currently, a minority of schools do offer a certificate, major, or degree program in e-business. The current levels of e-business courses, faculty expertise, and faculty development funds all seem to be less than satisfactory. The sudden and significant decline in internet-based businesses did have significant negative effects on the number of course offerings in e-business and student enrollment in these courses. However, a significant number of respondents believe that the importance of e-business, hence e-business courses, will increase in the future. (Contains 7 tables.)
