Brunel University and SAP are to offer a postgraduate course in business systems integration.
The two organisations claim that the course, a Master of Science qualification, will help to plug the growing IT skills gap. It will commence in the autumn, and will combine people, process and information integration skills with experience of aspects of SAP R/3, Business Information Warehouse and NetWeaver.
Mark Lycett, deputy head of the School of Information Systems at Brunel, said: "The MSc in business systems integration is key to our strategy of continually improving the employability of our postgraduate students. Here, the students will partner the key theory and conceptual knowledge they gain with hands-on experience of a leading commercial enterprise system."
