Learn SAP at UTS

The practical reality of accounting/finance in mid-size and large Australian (and international) organisations is ‘enterprise resource planning’ (ERP), and SAP ERP is by far the most widely used ERP system both in the private and public sectors in Australia.

The UTS Business School has more than 15 years of proven expertise in designing and delivering world-class training and education in SAP solutions. The SAP-team at UTS uses a unique approach to learning SAP ERP, which emphasises understanding of concepts underlying the system, rather than just learning how to use it.

Students are provided 24/7 access to the UTS SAP solutions, which enables them to deepen their understanding and skills and make substantial learning progress in a relatively short period of time. NB. This course is SAP HANA compliant. 

A/ Prof. Bernhard Wieder, the SAP-team leader at UTS, has more than 20 years SAP solution experience, is SAP ERP certified and has worked with industry partners and government agencies in Europe, Australia and North America.
