During a joint press conference at Sheraton Hotel Saigon today, the partnership between SAP, one of the market leaders in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software, and the Vietnamese German University (VGU) was announced. As a member of the SAP University Alliances Community, VGU is now well connected to universities’ leaders and students, SAP’s customers and partners, and SAP’s internal experts and able to give the benefits of this network to its students.
The availability of an SAP system as well as the support from SAP and its community are especially important for the Master’s program in Business Information Systems (BIS), where ERP systems are important parts of the curriculum.
"In order to provide our students with practical and industry-relevant knowledge, we already use SAP in our courses. Now that we are a member of the University Alliances program, we have access to state-of-the-art systems and teaching techniques that will help our program to be the premier postgraduate IT program in Vietnam", says Dr. Tim Reichert, VGU’s academic coordinator for BIS, who is in charge of the relationship with SAP.
In the near future, many programs delivered by VGU will benefit from participation in the Alliances Program announced today, amongst them is the newly-created Bachelor’s program in Finance and Accounting.
