ERP with SAP Certificate
SAP is the leading Enterprise Resource Planning software company in the world. Employers are looking for candidates experienced in using SAP software to better manage business operations such as tracking customers and business interactions. This ERP with SAP Certificate can provide valuable hands on experience to help you move up within your organization, or find a new position elsewhere.
Designed for working adults, the ERP with SAP® Certificate program consists of three accelerated courses that meet online using desktop videoconferencing in the evening once a week for just seven weeks. Participants can communicate with the Penn State instructor and interact with students at the other campuses in real time (i.e., “live”). In addition to the scheduled classes, there is also an online component to each course. SAP® software will be used as a tool in teaching the concepts, and will account for at least 30% of the overall program.
