Below are courses in Internet Business for those interested in enrolling in University or College programs in Internet Marketing or eCommerce. We’ll add to this list as we become aware of more courses or degreed programs:
It’s graduation time for scholars and most are thinking about being finished with their education. But it got me thinking about the fact that I changed careers after a very expensive college education. I switched to something entirely unrelated – Internet Business. But I did that over 10 years ago when there was no such thing as a degree in Internet Marketing or courses in eCommerce.
Getting started in Internet Business used to mean simply adapting whatever you learned or whatever you already knew to the web, but there are now full courses of study around internet marketing and web ecommerce offered at universities and colleges around the country. Now, even better, you can learn online through many accredited programs. It should be stated up front that this is NOT about Information Technology (IT) or software development, or programming, but Internet Business.
So let’s jump right in and look at the course and degree descriptions of those schools offering internet business degrees.
We’ll start off on the low end with “courses” in internet business and progress through full Master of Business Administration (MBA) Degrees. The descriptions come straight from the educational institution web sites.
I’ve got to say that if I were to choose a school based purely on the web site user experience (UX), I’d go for Full Sail University, but Rasmussen College turns up at the top of the search engine listings (SEO) so that may say something about each of them.
