Описание программы

This course presents an up-to-date analysis of the management, innovation and information systems aspects of the use of e-business technology. It combines transaction cost economics with a decade’s experience of e-business development to discuss e-business trends and strategies. This is a management information systems course and not a technical course. It considers the organisational, managerial, technological and theoretical aspects of e-business and how these elements can be combined to produce innovation in business models, processes and products.

The objectives of the course are to:

  • explain the growth of e-business to date, both business-to-consumer and businessto-business, using relevant theories from business, management and the social sciences
  • examine the interaction between technological trends and the business and social context of e-business, including the diffusion of social networks and web 2.0 developments
  • identify innovations within the domain of ebusiness by presenting cases of the innovative use of e-business technologies
  • present relevant theories from business, management and the social sciences that help to explain the development and growth of e-business
  • discuss different e-business (business) models and strategies, including global supply chain management and electronic markets
  • introduce the notion of new organisational forms, such as virtual organisations, electronic markets and open source production, which depend upon e-business technology.


This course is assessed by a three-hour unseen written examination
