    MSc E-Business Contemporary research demonstrates that e-business success is a consequence of the precise combination of four elements: leading-edge technologies, long-term business strategies, the entrepreneurial capacity to implement these strategies (by using the technologies), and aligning people behaviour inside and outside the organisation. From a functional perspective, e-business is how companies conduct business electronically with regards to their clients, suppliers and partners. It is also how this activity is integrated with the internal systems of the firm such as logistics, operations and finance. For example, Amazon not only markets and sells online but also integrates its sales systems with its internal systems in real-time. This enables the company to invoice and update the order status of their clients as well as to work with a vast logistics network of partners who ultimately manufacture and dispatch the products to consumers. This success relies on a strong customer-centric organisational culture. Who is the E-Business MSc programme suitable for? The E-Business MSc is suitable for ambitious people from any academic and professional background who want to develop their career at the exciting intersection of technology, business, entrepreneurship and organisational behaviour. Graduates from this programme seek careers as consultants, managers or invest in their own ventures. More specifically, the E-Business MSc is orientated to professionals who want to take general responsibility for whole e-business initiatives in any function of the firm, from Internet operations to internal systems, and from technology start-ups to multinational corporations, including the work at product and service provider level.
