Minor Description
Are you looking for a career in business but want more technical skills to make yourself competitive for jobs? Many Fortune 500 companies rely on SAP - an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software - which helps manage and streamline business processes. These systems run behind global business these days, integrating everything from human resources to sales, production to accounting. This minor combines business process management and information technology to prepare students for a thriving technical or business career. Few universities offer programs in this area and companies are seeking competitive students with these skills.
