The university’s School of Information Systems Computing and Maths and SAP have launched an MSc in business systems integration, to help improve the employment prospects of post graduate students.
Designed to reflect the needs of modern organisations, the course combines the integration of people, process and information with hands-on experience of aspects of SAP R/3, Business Warehouse and the Netweaver development platform.
The new MSc will commence in the 2007/2008 academic year, and increases SAP’s partnership with universities.
The SAP University Alliance is the largest academic business collaboration in the world. Membership, which is by invitation only, consists of 500 leading academic institutions.
Dr Mark Lycett, deputy head of the School of Information Systems Computing and Maths at Brunel, said, “The MSc in business systems integration is key to our strategy of continually improving the employability of our postgraduate students.
“Here, the students will partner the key theory and conceptual knowledge they gain, with hands-on experience of a leading commercial enterprise system.”
SAP said the course would help students get jobs with enterprises that directly deploy SAP business apps, and with SAP outsourcing partners such as IBM and Accenture.
