Electronic business focuses on organizational transformations based on information technologies. Web-based electronic commerce is having a major impact on the activities of business organizations. A number of different forms of integration among or inside organizations have become feasible, for example: B2B (business-to-business), B2C (business-to-consumer), B2E (business-to-employee), in the areas of customer relationship management, supply chain management, aggregation of information assets, and other areas. Organizations that undertake e-commerce often make radical changes in their business models, and offer new products and services in ways that were not envisaged or possible previously. These new practices are referred to as "electronic business". Therefore, the concept of e-business, as described above, differs from the concept of e-commerce, which targets the technological context of online transactions.
Electronic Commerce is an emerging economic sector experiencing exponential growth. Expertise in Electronic Commerce must combine advanced knowledge of information technology, business administration, and law, all disciplines in which the University of Ottawa offers graduate programs. The Graduate Certificate in Electronic Commerce provides advanced expertise explicitly in e-commerce. The certificate is based primarily on the expertise and resources within the master’s programs in Computer Science and Business Administration while drawing on the expertise and specialized courses offered in a number of other disciplines. The certificate is multidisciplinary and modular: it consists of common core courses, as well as optional courses.
