Shalini’s Answer

For eCommerce, I would recommend taking classes in high school that are around literature, writing, content, etc. A lot of what is done on websites is speaking to your customer in a language they understand. Anything creative will help you in all areas of websites. I would also recommend taking a coding class or basics in HTML, css, javascript. Websites are run on complicated technology that you sometimes need to troubleshoot. The more you know the easier it is to get to resolutions.
As you start looking at colleges, look into sales/marketing type degrees as well as business. I would also recommend taking some kind of advertising class if it is offered.
Fundamentals of e-commerce are learning how to:
- speak to your audience.
- find your audience.
- create innovative ways to reach your audience.
- understand your website capabilities (html/css/js/etc).
- work with your website, marketing, branding, sales and product teams.
- understand how design and copy can help/hurt your site or product.
- report on goals and achievements, etc.
- incorporate analysis of SEO, SEM, Google Suite and other system metrics into actionable tasks.

If anything I wrote above is foreign to you, then that is what you need to learn about as the fundamentals through classes and experience.

Good luck!

Hi Andrew. I'm not sure what you mean by commerce in this context. Is your question about what classes to take in 11th grade if you want to work in business? Maybe it would help us to answer your question if you told us what your goals are and where you are in your prep. For example, are you in 11th grade already? How did you hear about commerce and what interests you about it? Are there any specific courses you already know are electives in 11th grade that you can pick from, or are you unsure of the classes that will be available in your high school? It's okay if you don't have all the answers, but adding some information would help us figure out what kind of advice to give you so you can be successful. (You can edit your question by clicking the "edit" button on your question's page).

I am a commerce group student.Am in my 11th grade.I want to know what are the courses which are available for me to do my C.A courses further in future.I searched through things.All that I got was ICWA. But it says eligibility of 12 is needed.But I hear people telling me that 11th graders can join there.Now my question is what are offers available for me now,to give my best in future? Nivetha J.

Hello Andrew,

Not sure from which part of the world you belong to, But here in India, if you wish to pursue Commerce, the straight out route is to go for MEC (Maths,Economics,Commerce) or CEC (Civics,Economics,Commerce) in your +2 (Intermediate), This should then set the foundation for a Bachelor in Commerce or Bachelor in Commerce with Computers (Which is a specialized course which includes:study of computer applications, Information Technology, Accounting, Management, Business Statistics), Post which if still wish to pursue further studies you can then venture into CA/CS etc.

Hello, glad to see you're interested in ecommerce, it's a great field to be in right now.

If you want to work in ecom for a corporation I think the next step would be to apply to some colleges and try to get into a business program and eventually look into an MBA if you're looking for management roles.

As for some classes MIT offers free online courses, there are also free courses and certifications from Google for Adwords/Display/Shopping digital marketing. These come with certifications that you can get for things like Linkedin and you can even get some small side jobs through companies like upwork or fiver while you're learning.

Were you looking for any specific kind of class or course?
