Electronic Business is thriving and is making significant inroads in business and everyday life. In fact, doing business electronically has become an integral part of everyday life for public and private organisations, both large and small, across the globe. Based into the context of the emerging information society and related political visions like eEurope, the module will provide an overview across the whole range of eBusiness applications, sometimes referred to as the eBusiness Ecosystem.

The course will use the travel and tourism industry as lead example and elaborate on the usage and development of eBusiness across different segments of that industry.

From the customer's perspectives we will discuss issues like Web usability, new roles (Prosumer) and drivers of acceptance and adoption.

Learning goals:

The module's objective is to develop an understanding of the impact of Electronic Business - in economic, organisational and behavioural terms. Technologies are constantly evolving and much depends on the social, organisational and institutional situations in which technologies are embedded. The extremely dynamic Electronic Business environment provides students with a unique opportunity to learn about and understand fundamental issues about business, management, economics and the implications of living in an increasingly networked world.
