In this tutorial, the authors share their experience with integrating the SAP R/3 System into their curriculum so that an attendee can walk away knowing how to approach the tasks at his or her university. The authors are part of a team of faculty whose ultimate objective is to develop a cross-functional business school curriculum. An overview of the business plan is presented, some details regarding systems administration is provided, and the majority of the time is spent on identifying opportunities for enriching an MIS program. This paper does not address curriculum content issues but provides information on how a commercial ERP system (i.e., the SAP R/3 System) can be effectively utilized in an MIS program. The opinions expressed here are solely those of the authors.
