Electronic Business (2018)

Electronic Business (E-Business) gives students a hands-on understanding of electronic business. Students gain an appreciation of how information is collected, managed, and used for decision-making purposes, both internally using traditional back office systems, and externally, using the internet.

Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Electronic Business major, Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma in 2018. However, please note our new subject in Digital Business. Students enrolled in 2017 or previously should consult the Waikato Management School for programme advice.
