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.
