Enterprise Information Systems Minor

  • open to any student at SU except information systems majors
  • provides both theoretical background and hands-on experience with enterprise systems focusing on enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, large integrated information systems used in most organizations to support tactical and strategic functions
  • is intended to prepare non-information systems majors for employment in organizations through an understanding of integrated business processes and how an enterprise system supports such processes - a way to make you stand out from others in your major
    • Non-IS business majors – since ERP software is used in the vast majority of organizations, a thorough understanding of integrated business processes and an ERP system will complement deep content knowledge in accounting, finance, management and marketing
    • Computer science majors – companies that implement an ERP system almost always have to customize the software to reflect existing processes, which requires a knowledge of programming, but an understanding of those business processes and how the system facilitates them results in highly sought after knowledge to complement computer sciences skills
  • requires 18 credit hours, any of which may be used to fulfill other degree requirements
