This study built on previous research to explore the availability and characteristics of e-business master's degree programmes. Data were collected from college and university web sites. Required courses were categorised according to their apparent emphasis on business, e-business, or technical content. Findings suggest that the number of e-business master's programmes has increased on all continents since 2001, with the exception of North America. The North American programmes appeared to require more non-technical business courses relative to programmes based on other continents, as represented in the data. Composition of the curricula is compared to literature on e-business success factors. Implications for educational programme design are discussed.
