Publication Date



A quick look at today’s business job postings and advertisements solidify that our future business graduates will be less likely to compete successfully or interview for the new corporate job openings without business process integration skills. Our credibility, reputation and visibility as an institution of higher learning is at stake—given that the business student is not only our customer, but also our product. To survive in the new global economy, it is paramount that we re-engineer our curriculum and update business offerings to incorporate business process integration. The students will be the true beneficiaries—through internships and immediate job placements—if they are more knowledgeable in enterprise systems, i.e SAP and integrated business processes.
