Information Technology
Description:Electronic Business Technologies focuses on the integration of information technologies with business processes and strategies within a dynamic legal and business environment. At the base of Electronic Business Technologies is the fact that the application of Internet and information technology to business processes leads to remarkable new ways of conceiving and organizing businesses. This in turn leads to a myriad of innovative modes of management, new organisational structures and information architectures as well as new laws and legal and corporate strategies. The program offers two major areas of specialization or streams: Electronic Business and Electronic Technologies.

Electronic Business focuses on organizational transformations based on information technologies. Research includes the identification of best practices and trends, the comparative analysis of new business models, the evaluation of performance based on the introduction of new technologies, the efficacy of the new services and methods in attracting and satisfying customers, and the simulation of integrated supply chains. Electronic Technologies focuses on information technologies and system architectures, which are used to create and manage on-line commercial transactions. Research includes work on electronic commerce technologies and protocols (in particular wireless and multi-media), the analysis and development of algorithms and theories (in particular security, data mining, web data warehouses, and distributed applications), the definition of standards, architectures and software engineering methodologies for developing electronic commerce systems, the experimental development of innovative applications (virtual environments, e-learning, personalization, electronic negotiations, business reporting, legislative compliance, and health care).

Admission Requirements

Grade for Entrance Previous Year (%)*75

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

    The basic requirement is an honours bachelor’s degree in a discipline relevant to the stream chosen, either e-business or e-commerce. A minimum average of B+ (75%), calculated in accordance with FGPS guidelines, is required. Candidates whose average falls between 70 and 74% may also be considered for initial admission to one of the graduate certificates, with the possibility of transferring to the master’s provided they have completed the 12 compulsory credits of the certificate with no grade below B+ (75%). For the e-business stream, disciplines such as business administration, economics, computer science, electrical engineering, and business information are particularly relevant. For the e-commerce stream, disciplines such as computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, electrical engineering, and business information are particularly relevant and, for this stream, the degree program must have included courses in data structures, file management, operating systems, database management systems, and systems programming. Candidates who have already completed a graduate certificate in e-business or e-commerce with an average of at least B+ (75%) may be admitted into the e-business stream or the e-commerce stream of either one of the two Electronic Business Technologies master’s programs. They will receive credit towards the master for courses common to the certificate and the master's provided the courses have been completed within the preceding seven years.
