First 'e-commerce diploma' unveiled
What’s being claimed as the first postgraduate qualification developed in the UK specifically for Internet retailing professionals has been launched by research and training specialist Econsultancy.
The Postgraduate Internet Retailing Diploma has been devised in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University, and Ian Jindal of Internet Retailing Magazine. The two-year syllabus is aimed both at individuals already involved in e-commerce plus those from a more traditional retail background, guides delegates through a wide range of internet retailing issues, from marketing, buying, and merchandising, through to logistics, engineering and technology.
In addition to training by real-world e-commerce practitioners, the diploma is also closely linked to industry through the Leadership Council. The course has been designed to allow delegates to fit it in around work with applications being accepted now for September 2009 entry.
