Global E-Business


Core business and marketing strategic theory for Internet-driven commercial success.

Course overview

E-business is a sector that is rapidly coming of age. Each year the number and value of commercial transactions carried out via the web skyrockets. It is no exaggeration to say that over the next ten years the business world will be transformed.

The e-Business Diploma combines a comprehensive grounding in general business studies with specially focused training in the new skills required to harness the unique potential of the web.

Specialist subjects covered include Marketing, e-Commerce, Internet Marketing; in addition, general business modules in Business Law, Economics, Business Accounting, Business Statistics and Business Practice as well as Effective Business Communciation and Management Reporting Systems, providing a thorough underpinning in business practice.

Progression pathway

All modules lead towards the appropriate Open College Network (OCN) Level 4 certification and for those students who wish to continue their studies the course also offers pathways to further degree level study at selected UK Universities or upgrade to a Hove College Advanced Diploma.

What the students' say…

Highly recommend Hove College for anyone who is entering back in to education, whether that is for a change in career or to devleop up-to-date skills. After signing up to do a 36 week course in Global Ebusiness, I have decided to stay on to complete an Advanced Diploma in Creative COmmunications, as I have realised my true potential, thanks to my tutors, Jeff and Pam's support!
