Why Choose an E-Commerce Marketing Certificate?

If you have a strong interest in Internet-based marketing activity, you'll find that E-commerce is the newest and most innovative marketing methodology used by business executives.
The e-commerce marketing certificate will enhance your skills in:

  • Multi-channel marketing - integrating online and offline marketing with profitable results
  • Selling online, and saving money and time for your company and your customers
  • Managing databases in a digital world
  • Mastering best practices in both business-to-customer and business-to-business e-commerce marketing
  • Creation and execution of Internet marketing/advertising and social media plans and campaigns
  • You will be provided with the latest cutting edge internet-based marketing skills that will help you, not only in e-commerce, but in careers such as direct marketing, advertising and professional selling.

    This certificate is structured to complement the knowledge and career-readiness of students earning advertising, marketing, computer information systems, communication and public relations degrees.

    This certificate can be completed online.

    Admission Requirements

    Any person admitted to a Ferris State University degree program may enroll in courses for undergraduate COB certificates. No more than 50% of the credits in a certificate may be transferred from another institution. If a student is in a FSU degree-seeking program, the certificate will not be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are required in the program/major.

    Individuals wanting to advance their career, but not admitted to an FSU degree program, may also earn undergraduate COB certificates through the non-degree program.

    Admission/registration process for individuals seeking only a certificate:

  • Individuals wishing only to complete a COB certificate may enroll as a non-degree student restricted to a maximum of 9 credits per semester and a total of 15 credits.
  • Unless it is determined that regular program admission criteria should be met in order to complete the certificate successfully and be a contributing member of the course, non-degree students need only show proof of a 2.35 high school GPA where competency is required and complete the simple non-degree application process by accessing the FSU website. FSU provides part-time non-degree students with a streamlined method to register early for day or evening courses on the FSU campus through the Educational and Career Counseling Center located in Starr 313.
  • An advisor can be assigned by the College of Business in the certificate program.

    Admission process for non-degree certificate students wishing to pursue a bachelor or associate’s degree:
  • If the student decides to pursue a bachelor or associate’s degree, admission criteria for the College of Business is initiated when the “Program Change Form” request is processed.
  • The student will then complete the regular admission process for FSU.

    Any mitigating circumstances will be considered on an individual basis by the College of Business Dean’s Office.

    More Information:
    Additional guidance can be found on the College of Business Webpage under the Admissions tab.

  • Graduation Requirements

    You will receive the E-Commerce Marketing certificate after completion of the requirements with a minimum 2.0 grade point average.

    No more than 50% of the credits in this certificate may be transferred from another institution, nor will the certificate be granted if more than 50% of the certificate credits are specifically required in the students major.
