VIRTUAL WORLD COMES DOWN TO EARTH AT ULH

 

The World Wide Web is becoming more and more important to the world of commerce and many business transactions are now negotiated over the Internet.

 

At the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside will soon be possible to study Electronic Commerce, which explores the many benefits of operating in an increasingly virtual world.

 

Pursuing studies in E-commerce is potentially profitable and this programme, new for 1999 entry, will help students develop the personal, social and practical aspects required to operate confidently on the Internet.

 

The course is not all ‘surfing the net’, although students will learn how to produce Internet sites. The main aim is to develop students into business analysts capable of using the vast software now available.

 

Graduates in E-commerce will have an immense range of options open to them, from entering a fast-track management training programme to working as an E-commerce expert for a small business.

 

The course is to be studied as a major subject as part of the BA (Hons) Electronic Business and Commerce degree. To find out more, please contact Rachael Pickering on 01482 463588.
