TLD - MSc in eBusiness, UCD Michael Smurfit School of Business

The MSc in Electronic Business (EBusiness) is a programme which provides a wide-ranging treatment of the theory and practice of EBusiness, which in the last decade, has totally transformed the way business and management is conducted in both a national and an international context. The programme will expand students’ business and technical proficiencies necessary to design, implement, manage and advise on Electronic Business solutions in both private and public sectors.

Rationale for the MSc in EBusiness

Electronic Business is thriving and has become an integral part of everyday life for public and private organisations, both large and small, across the world.

Despite its popularity, the impact of Electronic Business - in economic, organisational and behavioural terms - is still not fully understood. Technologies are constantly evolving and much depends on the social, organisational and institutional environments in which the technologies are situated.

This extremely dynamic Electronic Business MSc Programme provides students with a unique opportunity to learn about and understand fundamental issues relating to Ebusiness management, economics, and the implications of conducting business in an increasingly networked global environment.

Career Opportunities

Graduates from the MSc in EBusiness will target positions in some of the world’s leading management consulting firms,
service providers, and in other commercial and public-sector organisations. They may also work in professional services or project management, as IT and business analysts: they may specialise in eMarketing, or conduct further eBusiness related
research as part of a PhD degree. Several eBusiness graduates have successfully established or - after completing the
programme, expanded - their own high-tech business.
