Business students need curricula that stress the whole enterprise rather than the individual functions and components. To become effective leaders, business students need to understand how organizations formulate plans and manager their operations using ERP systems. To enhance our undergraduate and graduate programs in Information Systems, an increasing number of universities have entered or are contemplating entering into alliances with leading vendors of ERP software and are planning to redesign their curricula to help students understand the requirements and the design of enterprise- wide systems solutions through use of ERP.
