Abstract: The primary purpose of this paper was to present a model for developing an e-commerce curriculum in the College of Business. Several universities that already have implemented e-commerce curriculums, either at the master|s level or undergraduate level, were studied for purposes of validating the model we are proposing. The authors give a five-step plan for universities to consider when implementing an e-commerce curriculum or programme.

Keywords: e-commerce curriculum; curriculum development; business curriculum development methods; business education; electronic commerce; mission-based model; student-oriented model; higher education.
