Leeds Metropolitan University's School of Information Management is launching an MSc in e-commerce next month to cope with demand from graduates and employers "keen to harness the potential of the internet".
The course will include modules covering topics such as business processes and virtual organisations, e-commerce strategy, electronic payment and transaction systems, e-marketing, information and knowledge management, and the social and economic dimensions of e-commerce.
According to market development officer, Marion Baldwin, tuition will be offered both full and part-time and is aimed at graduates with business or information technology degrees.
"There is a massive recruitment demand for people with these skills and we feel that the new MSc will fill a vital gap in the market," she says.
