A team of students from the Lubar School of Business has placed sixth in the 4th International ERPsim Competition.  Shruti Shah, Rakshanda Kaukab, and Ali Alkhudair – all students in the graduate program in Information Technology Management pursuing a Certificate in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) – comprised the Lubar team, which competed against 14 other finalists from around the world.

“Competitors are tasked using a real-life ERP system (mySAP ECC 6.0) to operate a simulated company, interacting with suppliers and customers by sending and receiving orders, delivering their products, and completing the whole cash-to-cash cycle,” said the team’s coach, Mark Srite, Associate Professor of Information Technology Management.  “Our team did a fabulous job.”

A leader in enterprise resource planning education, the Lubar School of Business is host to one of only five SAP University Competence Centers (UCC) throughout the world.  The Center provides SAP hosting services and technical support to 122 universities that participate in the SAP University Alliance. 

“ERP skills and professional certification are extremely marketable for students as they graduate,” said William (Dave) Haseman, director of the SAP University Competence Center at the Lubar School and IBM Professor of Information Technology Management. 

Lubar ITM/ERP students recently outperformed other students in the most recent TERP10 certification exam, which serves as the global certification standard for SAP enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.  Lubar students had a 90% pass rate compared to the North American average of 65%.  TERP10 certification ensures fundamental knowledge and skills in SAP solutions and results in SAP Certified Associate designation, recognized by partners and companies across the SAP ecosystem.
