Today, e-commerce sites depend on a multitude of factors to determine their success. The E-Commerce Design curriculum provides an overview of e-commerce and Web page design for use in marketing and selling online. The courses provide techniques to plan and to design a platform-independent commerce website. They focus on web business strategies, the hardware and software tools necessary for internet commerce, comparison and selection of commerce architecture, security considerations, and the planning of a complete business-to-consumer and business-to-business site.
Courses in each level (Foundation, Core and Advanced Track) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
