Graduates of Penn State Beaver's Project and Supply Chain Management program receive SAP® certification and Project Management Institute (PMI)® training hours.
Planning (ERP) Certificate with SAP
SAP is the world's largest enterprise application software company with more than 170,000 customers in more than 120 countries. The certificate program in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) with SAP helps set our graduates apart from other business and management information systems graduates when gaining successful employment. In fact, based on a Central Michigan University study, the average starting salary of SAP graduates was $5,250 greater than non-SAP graduates.
The goal of this program is to use SAP technology as a tool to help teach business concepts. Instead of studying textbook exercises at the end of a given textbook chapter, students directly interact with a real business executing real functions and transactions in a life-like business-to-business simulation.
Students must complete all three SAP-related courses with a "C" or better.
- MIS 404: Introduction to ERP and Business Processes
- SCM 445: Operations Planning and Control
- SCM 460: Purchasing and Materials Management
Certification is offered at no additional cost to students, a value of at least $4,000.
Project Management Institute
Because Penn State is a Project Management Institute Registered Education Provider (R.E.P), students who successfully complete MGMT 415 and MGMT 418 receive PMI professional development units. These units can be used to sit for PMI certification exams, such as the PMP — Project Management Professional, as well as to keep certifications active once they are earned. They are offered at no additional cost to students, a value of at least $2,000.
