The Certificate in Enterprise Resource Planning is designed for business students who desire a sequence of courses that focus specifically on the Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) area. ERP systems are critical information systems that connect a company's operations, including purchasing, production, sales, service, accounting, supply chain, finance and asset management, and customer/supplier relationships. 

ERP certificate students will not only develop knowledge in ERP but also develop mobile ERP applications and participate in an ERP simulation game. Because the Lubar College is home to one of only five SAP University Competence Centers in the world, Lubar faculty have extensive ERP teaching experience.

The certificate is designed for non-Information Technology Management majors. This five-course sequence prepares students for the SAP Certified Application Associate exam. 

Students interested in the certificate program should contact Undergraduate Student Services, Lubar Hall N297, (414) 229-5271,, to make a formal declaration of their intention.


To obtain the certificate, a Lubar College of Business non-ITM major must complete 15 credits of required coursework while fulfilling all requirements of the baccalaureate degree.
