George Mason offers a new interdisciplinary Master of Science in E-commerce this fall that responds to the demand for professionals to work in a wide variety of capacities in digital age organizations in Northern Virginia and elsewhere.

Graduates with the new degree will be able to understand management, public policy, and information technology aspects, and effectively integrate these in developing electronic commerce solutions in specialized applications, from electronic government to electronic banking to telehealth.

Managed by the School of Information Technology and Engineering, the degree is offered jointly with the School of Management, the School of Public Policy, the School of Law, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Nursing and Health Science.

Students will complete an e-commerce core of courses covering basic IT infrastructure, software services, managerial economics, financial reporting, law and public policy, and case studies. Also required are concentration courses in either information technology, management, health systems, public policy, enterprise management, or law.
