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. The optional courses will focus either on technology, business administration, law, or mathematics.
On completion of the certificate, qualified students meeting admission requirements may apply to one of the master's programs, in particular the master of computer science or the MBA. Credit is granted for relevant courses completed in the certificate. The number of credits remaining are assessed individually in relation to the student's chosen master's program.
The certificate operates within the framework of the General Regulations of the FGPS, which are available on the Website at the following link:
