KCGI's ERP education has a strong lineup of experienced faculty members.From the first semester of enrollment, systematic lectures and practical training are conducted to help students pass the SAP certification examination.The number of companies implementing SAP ERP in Japan continues to increase, and this ERP consultant certification is a powerful weapon for employment.More than 20 of those who have passed the exam have been hired by listed companies and are active as leaders in the IT field at companies in Japan and abroad.KCGI is the only university in Japan that offers systematic SAP ERP education.Next, we will focus on SAP ERP education in order to reach our 200th successful candidate.
