Electronic Commerce In Malaysia Not Possible?

Just few weeks ago when I had my breakfast with my classmates, some of them said that they might want to change course, which mainly because they think that E-Commerce is not popular in Malaysia. So I asked them: Why you choose to study this course in the beginning? Guess what answers I got from them?

“My mom told me to do so ; The program supervisor said this course has a bright future ; I NEVER heard of E-Commerce before ; E-Commerce… Don’t you think that it sounds cool?”

WTH, this is what I got from them…

I know… I know that E-Commerce is not popular here, but still I think that there must be something that we can do with those knowledge that we learn in college, right?

So do you think that Electronic Commerce do not have future in Malaysia?
