SAP Certificate

In 2009, the Jenkins Graduate School of Management launched the SAP University Alliances Program in the NC State University Poole College of Management to provide courses in the world’s leading enterprise software, SAP.

Currently, 87% of the Forbes Global 2000 companies use SAP, and 75% of the world’s transaction revenue touches an SAP system.

The Poole College of Management in collaboration with the SAP UA Program issues The SAP Student Recognition Award to current Jenkins MBA students. The NC State University Graduate School does not formally recognize this certificate program. Student transcripts will not make a note of the certificate.


Offered to current Jenkins graduate management students, the SAP University Alliances (UA) Program provides coursework in the enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, SAP. This program is led by Dr. Marianne Bradford, Associate Professor of Accounting.

Required courses for certification:

  • MBA 515 Enterprise Resource Planning Systems (3 hrs)
  • MBA 590 (Advanced) ERP Configuration Using SAP (1 hr)

Note: MBA 515 is a prerequisite or co-requisite for MBA 590. MBA 515 is typically available during the fall and spring semesters, and MBA 590 is offered online during the second half of the spring semester. Upon completion of the courses, students are eligible to receive the SAP Student Recognition Award certificate. The college issues this certificate, signed by Professor Bradford, the SAP UA Coordinator for NC State.
