The use of Internet technology to create relationships between customers, suppliers, employees and business partners is oftentimes referred to as e-business. E-business companies offer many career paths for technology-minded individuals including sales, marketing, customer service, management and information technology (IT) support and security. The E-Business Technology certificate assists the student in preparing for multiple career paths as it encompasses instruction in Web design, IT management, networking information security and software.
E-business professionals should have an understanding of business practices and principles. They must be willing to keep up with new technologies and emerging trends, be detail oriented and able to communicate effectively.
