E-Business Technology (MSc) - At the institution - London - Greater London
The MSc E-Business Technology is designed for computer science graduates who wish to gain specialisation in e-business related technologies, but also acquire a good understanding of the relevance of economics and management in their work. The programme helps students expand their system development skills, including XML, web search and navigation, enterprise architectures and data mining, while at the same time helping them understand the role of technology within an e-business organisation, as well as the structure of e-commerce markets. The programme will equip you with theories, principles and tools for analysing and coping with issues of e-business. You will explore key issues in the implementation of the technologies of e-business and develop an understanding of the importance of innovation for rethinking management, business strategy, corporate assets, intellectual property rights, institutions, organisations and firms in a globalised world. The programme is ideally suited to people working, or who would like to work, in the broad area of e-business, and who aspire to become managers, industrialists, or business and policy analysts. It is also suited to entrepreneurs who want to understand the theoretical principles underpinning e-business and software engineers who wish to specialise in e-business technologies.
