Program Overview:    Filling a void in current training 

For many years, company leadership has desired to find useable IT solutions which can provide for successful integrated systems making their companies more efficient and effective.  The functionality of fully integrated enterprise systems requires the breakdown of the "silos" or functional business areas.  The skills needed by today's employees requires the understanding of business processes across many functional areas or divisions of the business or enterprise. An enterprise system integrates processes such as product planning, development, manufacturing, sales, and marketing. Some of the most common ERP modules include those for product planning, material purchasing, inventory control, distribution, accounting, marketing, finance, and HR.  For the past 20 years, CMU's business curriculum has emphasized the need for students to understand information systems integration and business functionality.  Recruiters wanted CMU's graduates to not only be knowledgeable in their major, but to also have a full understanding of how their discipline integrates with other functional areas of the business.  As business transactions are performed in one functional area of the business, students needed to understand the integration of those transactions on other disciplines. ​
