Brunel University School of Information Systems Computing and Maths enters postgraduate teaching alliance with SAP

Brunel University School of Information Systems Computing and Mathematics today announces the launch of an MSc in Business Systems Integration in collaboration with SAP.

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 Netweaver. The new MSc will commence in the 2007/2008 academic year.

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.

“SAP and Brunel University have enjoyed a very rewarding relationship for a number of years,“ said Martin Gollogy, Director of University Alliances, UK, Ireland and the Nordics.

“The incorporation of SAP within Brunel's MSc Business Systems Integration means that students can gain access to the world's most sophisticated business management software as part of their core studies at a leading UK University.

“This enables students to integrate theoretical and systems learning with practical hands-on experience of the leading business management system,“ he continued.

“Future employers, whether they be large enterprise SAP users or consulting firms with major SAP practices such as Accenture or IBM, will be impressed with the ability to draw on real SAP knowledge as part of the study of systems integration and implementation issues. We are certainly very happy to continue to work with one of the UK's leading universities.“

Dr Mark Lycett, Deputy Head of the School of Information Systems Computing and Maths at Brunel University, added: “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.“
