The impact of Electronic Commerce and E-Business on the global economy is undeniable. The promise and potential of the new “e-business” paradigm is the driving force behind the tremendous demand for IT professionals with both a technology and a business background. As the size and scope of the global E-Market continues to grow, institutions of higher education will devote more of their time and resources to its study. This article examines issues arising from the implementation of an E-Business curriculum. The authors discuss the current E-Business environment, from the perspective of the viability of the E-Business paradigm and the effect of recent environmental events and trends as they relate to curricular issues. The Challenges of implementing an E-Business curriculum are discussed and opportunities for enhancing current curricular approaches to the study of E-Business are proposed.
