Adding Value through Internet, Mobile Communications and Ubiquitous Connectivity – One-Year Master's Degree: Master of E-Business Management

 

The global business environment has been changing dramatically over the last few years. The impact of this has been a complete transformation of business itself, all kinds of business, and the kind of careers it demands.

 

E-Business, earlier thought of as just buying and selling using the Internet, has become an undeniable reality with applications for all kinds of businesses from banking to human resource optimization, from manufacturing to sales, from medical fields to logistic management, from environmental monitoring to environmental management, and from transforming education to creating new forms of government administration  (e-Government). A bank CEO today, for example, can monitor his bank's performance in real time by implementing technologies based on E-Business. A strategically thinking manager then can use the same infrastructure, or enhance it with compatible technology innovations, to provide a host of services to customers that the bank's competitors never thought of, thus creating completely new revenue streams for the bank.  E-Government applications in countries such as Japan, Korea and Singapore are allowing those countries to provide unprecedented services to the general public....
