ECommerce Solutions and ELeadership: Impact Analyses at Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Their Organizational Leadership
Existing literature reveals a significant surge in the investment in Electronic Commerce (eCommerce) solutions at Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) globally. However, there is little or no research on their successes and failures and many HEIs are interested in attaining a clear understanding of the returns on their investments. Furthermore, no known research has been conducted to reconnoitre the effect of these eCommerce solutions on organizational leadership/hierarchies at HEIs, especially, when this is considered to be critical to institutions' strategic mission and planning. This paper presents a comprehensive impact analysis of eCommerce solutions at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), by reconnoitring their effects on different operational constructs of the institutions.
