Abstract: The use of enterprise systems in business curricula is recommended for the purpose of demonstrating both an integrated view of the firm and the use of information technology to support the efficient and effective performance of business processes to achieve organizational objectives. Based on the experience of a core group of faculty at a private business university who integrated SAP into various business courses, the authors provide twelve tips for others who might want to do the same. The tips are presented in three categories: 1) curriculum issues, 2) training and outside support, and 3) student and faculty related issues. As more colleges consider inserting enterprise systems within their business curricula, effective planning and efficient use of time and resources in these areas will help to reduce start-up time and bolster success.
