DeGroote School of Business

SAP University Alliances Program

DeGroote School of Business aims to be at the forefront of education and research in Enterprise Systems. Through our alliance with SAP, the world’s leading vendor of enterprise software, we provide our students with access to state-of-the-art SAP ERP Enterprise software. By incorporating SAP technology into the course curriculum, our primary goal is to help educate and prepare students for the business world by enabling them to utilize advanced technology and powerful information systems. This exposure, experience and education give McMaster students a competitive workplace advantage while giving employers access to well-prepared graduates skilled in the latest concepts and tools.

Today’s dynamic and turbulent business environment requires organizations to become globally competitive, and their long-term survival depends on the delivery of value-added products and services to their customers in the shortest possible time. This, in turn, demands the integration of enterprise processes to achieve efficiencies along the entire business value chain, starting from the supplier to the customer. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is the strategic instrument that allows companies to gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace by integrating all business processes and optimizing the utilization of available resources.

DeGroote School of Business, delivers on this vision through a number of course offerings as well as an opportunity to earn an SAP associate level professional certification.
