Subject Title
Business Process I

Subject Description
As more and more businesses adopt enterprise systems globally, it becomes increasingly important for students to understand how real world business processes are managed and executed in a practical and accessible format. This course deals with the key processes that are common in most companies, and it demonstrates how enterprise systems enable companies to execute those processes quickly and efficiently; hence this course will bridge the gap between the fundamentals of how business operates (processes) and the tools that business people use to accomplish their task (SAP enterprise system).
