Course Description
Get a competitive edge with companies looking for their own competitive edge…

A company’s Enterprise-Wide Information System comprises its Enterprise Resource Planning System (ERP), Supply Chain Management and Knowledge Management systems. The proper implementation and integration of disparate systems is a critical factor in maintaining and increasing organizational performance.

This course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the key role that ERPs play in an organization and the challenging task of implementing and managing the Information Systems (IS) function. You will learn how to execute an entire business process chain in four core areas (customer order management, procurement, production, and accounting), and you’ll be able to explain how “best business practices’ are incorporated in an ERP. Throughout the semester, assigned projects will give you the opportunity to work through real-life business situations using the SAP R/3 system and explore the interaction among the different business processes, giving you a competitive edge in the marketplace. You'll spend a third of the semester playing a team based market simulation game and competing for the highest profit using SAP.
