Would I want an SAP UA Recognition Award?
SAP uses the phrase “The best-run companies run SAP” as a selling point. The truth underlying this phrase has resulted in SAP becoming the world’s largest business software company in terms of revenue. SAP is currently used by more than 35,000 companies and with new products targeting small and medium enterprises (SMEs), SAP’s customer base will eclipse 100,000 companies by 2010.

Clark Atlanta University’s SAP Student Recognition Award signifies that you have completed at least three SAP-approved courses that include significant hands-on experience with SAP. A minimum of 30% of each SAP-approved course is devoted to in-depth exposure to SAP. This translates into developing skill sets that can give you a competitive advantage in the job market – including multiple career options in business and IT, more managerial opportunities, and higher salaries. Because individuals with SAP skills are highly sought after, they receive pay increases that outpace the market.

Students who earn an SAP UA Recognition Award have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with mySAP ERP navigation and SAP ERP’s Financial Accounting (FI), Controlling (CO), Materials Management (MM), and Sales & Distribution (SD) modules. 

Universities that enable undergraduate students to gain comparable levels of hands-on SAP experience are few and far between. This means that Clark Atlanta University’s SAP UA Recognition Award has value and can give you a leg up when applying for jobs at SAP user organizations.

Clark Atlanta University’s SAP University Alliances Recognition Award is being ‘found’ by more and more major corporations. Since 2012, Deloitte, Accenture, Georgia Pacific, and Boeing, and Union Pacific have come to campus to recruit SAP Recognition Award seeking students for internships, co-ops, and permanent employment. Clark Atlanta students have also completed SAP internships at IBM, Coca-Cola, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Homedepot, and Deloitte.

What is SAP

SAP is a software company from Germany that specializes in Enterprise Resource Planning and is used by 70% of the world’s business. The softwares that SAP utilizes for businesses include S4 HANA, FICO, BW, HCM, and many more. They’re used for Data Storage, Human Capital Management, Financial Analysis, and Supply Chain Management to name a few. SAP is among several companies on the forefront of Machine Learning, IoT, and e-Commerce. 

SAP’s primary products focus on Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), which it helped to pioneer. ERP systems attempt to integrate several organizational data sources and processes into a unified system. The two key components of an ERP system are a common database and a modular software design. The common database allows every department in a company to store and retrieve information in real-time. An ERP modular software design enables a variety of programs to be added to improve the efficiency of the business.

Ideally, ERP includes a single database that contains all data needed to support:

  • Manufacturing
  • Supply Chain Management
  • Financials
  • Projects
  • Human Resources
  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Data Warehouse
