Many universities are now beginning to offer e-commerce classes. Some are even trying their hand at e-marketing classes. While working on my MBA at Woodbury University in 2001, I took an e-commerce course just for the easy "A". My professor, Mr. Byrd, asked me to prepare a 30-minute presentation on search engine optimization, since I own the company RegisterEverywhere.com (a search engine optimization company that has served over 17,500 clients worldwide). While I was delivering my presentation, I noticed all of the other 13 students in the class were taking frantic notes on almost everything I was saying.
After I finished the presentation many of the MBA students came to me and said that was great and they learned quite a bit. The same sentiment was shared by professor Byrd. At the end of the semester professor Byrd asked the e-commerce class, one by one, what one thing they learned in class that stood out and they will use for years to come. Out of the 13 other students in the class, 9 of them stated the presentation I gave on search engine optimization and marketing was what they liked the most.
