Brief description

This module examines i) the 'e-business' strategies, regulations, procedures etc. businesses require to successfully conduct business over the internet; and ii) how these strategies, regulations, procedures etc. are similar to or different from those practiced in more traditional, 'off-line' marketing/business situations. Particular attention is paid to addressing e-business topics not already covered in other modules currently available to MBA and MSc Management students at UWA. In so doing, this module provides coverage of another set of areas and subjects business students require to have a comprehensive, academic and practicable understanding of e-business.
