Student Comments

"I greatly appreciate the SAP University Alliance Program and the various courses supplemented through it. The various supplemented classes are a great way to get some working experience utilizing some of the techniques and theories covered here. Coming from an Information Systems major, I love the new challenges and various disciplines such as Purchasing/Supply Chain Management, and Human Resources that I get to encounter here at Central. I would urge more students to look into Central's ERP classes."

"Central's MSIS program has provided me with a sturdy business and technology foundation. My education from CMU has enabled me to begin a career in the ever changing software industry. I firmly believe graduating from a SAP University Alliance University has helped me gain employment at SAP Labs. As a developer in the Small and Mid-Size Business Unit, I have worked on many exciting projects, which include developing preconfigured solutions for small to mid-size businesses."

"Being involved with the MSIS program at CMU gave me the skills and experience I needed to get my feet in the door at Silicon Valley and begin a career with one of the largest e-business software companies."

"The MSIS program provided me the valuable knowledge both in business and technology. After graduation, I started to work right away with the leading ERP Company, SAP LABS, Inc. I strongly believe that the MSIS program gave me a foundation of knowledge to advance in my career."

"The SAP program allows the students to gain a competitive advantage over other students. Students that take the SAP courses or a member of the student group (SAP UASUG), learn a technical skill that their major does not provide. SAP alone is a transferable skill that can help a student learn new concepts that they come across. In addition, the SAP program at Central Michigan University defines the standards of programs that other universities try to achieve."

"The SAP program at CMU is an excellent opportunity for students to work with an integrated system. The SAP classes offer much more than just textbook learning - they also offer the chance to use the system. This is what will give CMU students the edge over other students in the workforce."

"Being hired at Plastipak Packaging, Inc. is a direct result of not only the SAP Academy, but other SAP Intensive Classes and subject matter provided by Central Michigan University SAP Faculty."

"My education at CMU was very extensive. I didn't just become proficient in the use of SAP software; I learned how to develop systems that allowed the implication of enterprise resource software in general. In addition, I learned how to configure a system for a particular company's specific needs as well as how to code or program. With SAP it's a language call ABAP/4. There is no doubt that my in-depth courses in SAP enabled me to secure top-notch employment offers long before I graduated. As an intern, I was immediately placed on The Dow Chemical Company's SAP team. I interview with more than a half dozen global companies that were looking for someone with comprehensive SAP knowledge."

"I am currently an ERP specialist at Deloitte & Touche, with the majority of my work being around SAP and PeopleSoft. Some thoughts I think I could provide to students would have to be to utilize the resources that CMU has to offer. From industry experience to this point, I have spoke to many individuals in the IT industry and many could not believe the types of opportunities I received at CMU. I work with CEO's, CIO's, and CTO's on a regular basis and these people in the economy are amazed at opportunities students have."

"I would recommend students take full advantage of the SAP opportunities at CMU, especially if they desire a leg-up on their fellow job-seekers. SAP offers a highly specialized knowledge that appears to me to be sought after by certain employers."
