To make the teaching of information systems and technology in business schools more relevant for today’s technology-enhanced business community, we joined the SAP University Alliance and have begun using their materials and exercises in all of our existing MIS courses and are using SAP in the fall 2012 term in a new course about enterprise-wide systems. Here we discuss the decision process for joining the SAP University Alliance, our proposal to fund this initiative, our implementation of the initiative, and the issues that we faced and face going forward.
