It is a pleasure to introduce this new website of the Master of Science in Information Technology eBusiness Technology program. It is intended to serve the needs of a diverse community, including current students, prospective applicants, recruiters and alumni.
I hope that by exploring the site you can become familiar with the diversity of our student body, which has included over 260 students from 32 different countries over the past nine years. The roots of the program extend back to 1999, when the first master’s program in electronic commerce in the United States was offered at Carnegie Mellon. Our alumni now manage important corporate eBusiness units in Europe, North America and Asia. Our faculty, now numbering 15, represents a full spectrum of research and experience in eBusiness fields. The students have access to the resources of the School of Computer Science, the largest academic computer science research establishment in the United States. On our site you will find information about some of our graduates, the corporations that sponsor our work, and current news and data about eBusiness generally. I suggest that you add it to your list of browser “Favorites” so you can keep returning to the rapidly evolving domain of eBusiness Technology.
