Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a planning method that increases management efficiency by optimizing the allocation of people, goods, and money, which are the basic elements of corporate management.
The ERP education at KCGI/Business IT course is strongly led by Prof. Ueda and five other experienced faculty members.From the first semester of enrollment, students are required to develop a systematic schedule of lectures and practical training in order to pass the SAP certification examination.As more and more companies in Japan are adopting SAP ERP, this ERP consultant certification is the shortest passport to employment.All of the 100 students who have passed the course so far have found employment, and more than 20 of them have been hired by publicly listed companies.KCGI is the only university in Japan that offers systematic SAP ERP education.We will continue to focus on SAP ERP education in order to reach our 150th and 200th successful students.
