How Does Online Learning Work?

An online class usually has the same curriculum as its in-person equivalent. The main difference is that rather than attending class on campus every week, you view your lessons, submit assignments and take exams via the school's distance learning website. Naturally, you'll need a computer with Internet access to take an online class; additional software or peripheral equipment may also be necessary since PowerPoint, audio and video files are often used to facilitate online learning. You'll communicate with your instructors and classmates online, too, utilizing e-mail, chat rooms and message boards. Bear in mind that some schools offer fully online programs, while others have hybrid or blended programs that offer a mix of online and in-person classes.

What Can I Do After Graduation?

Once you've completed an undergraduate program in e-business or e-commerce, you can either enter the workforce or go on to a master's degree program in e-commerce, e-business, finance or marketing. You also might choose to pursue a Master of Business Administration (MBA). Examples of typical job titles for graduates of e-business and e-commerce programs include the following:

  • Web programmer
  • Database administrator
  • Webmaster
  • Internet advertiser
  • Website designer
  • Web content developer
