The Evolution of Electronic Commerce Education
Burkey, Julie
Journal of Education for Business, v82 n5 p276-281 May-Jun 2007
Business schools began introducing electronic commerce programs in the late 1990s at unprecedented rates. In this study, the author examined the evolution in electronic commerce programs offered by AACSB-accredited colleges and universities from 2001 to 2005. Although these programs are declining in number, they provide the necessary skills and knowledge required in today's digital economy. The findings of this study suggest that the essential skills and knowledge included in these programs have changed little over the periods examined. The author has provided profiles of the skills and knowledge included in master of business administration (MBA) and bachelor's programs in electronic commerce on the basis of the 2005 curricula. (Contains 3 tables.)
