Ready for the future of e-commerce

The BE EXCELLENT (part of Dept) experts held their third e-commerce seminar at the University of Leipzig during spring semester 2017. Overall, 25 students of computer sciences, business informatics and business studies acquired a broad knowledge about e-commerce history, business models, technical architecture, online marketing, data privacy as well as legal aspects.

Being equipped with the basic know-how, the students drafted and implemented their own fictive online shops in small groups. The emerging e-commerce specialists were able to prove their excellent technical skills and gathered valuable experiences in project management.

Besides reaching a good score, there was another incentive for doing an outstanding final project presentation for the students: The best group was honoured with a voucher and an exclusive invitation to the BE EXCELLENT showroom in Berlin. Here, the students had the opportunity to present their online shop to the management of BE EXCELLENT and discussed current trends and e-commerce challenges with them. Moreover, the students got exciting insights into the showroom technologies and took over a 360° perspective on integrated retail.

We are very proud to work with such talented students and we're already looking forward to proceeding our cooperation with the University of Leipzig.
