Enterprise Systems Education For Africa (ESEFA)


Course Description

This course provides a general overview of Enterprise Systems (ES) using SAP ERP software. Case studies cement the theoretical foundation of the system and business processes by putting theory into practice using integrated business processes. The “Guided learning” method explains processes and procedures in detail and makes sure knowledge is imparted quickly. Students learn about a number of theoretical and practical issues concerning business processes and their mapping into an enterprise system. After completing this course, students will be able to identify and match real-life business processes into ES business processes. The course consists of a core curriculum comprising SAP Navigation together with the Procure-to-Pay, Sales-to-Cash and Inventory Management business processes. The course can be concluded with an ES Fundamentals qualification exam.

Content Delivery

The course structure consists of approximately 13 hours of classroom lecture, discussion and exercise sessions and 10 hours of computer lab sessions where students do online workshops/tutorials on the actual SAP ERP system.
