February 10, 2015
More than 30 area high school students learned about the latest
business technologies during the SAP® Young Thinkers Program hosted by
the Seidman College of Business. The event was held February 6 in the
L. William Seidman Center.
Students from West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science, East Kentwood, Kenowa Hills and Innovative Central High Schools spent the day participating in hands-on exercises that tested their analytical and creative thinking skills, while learning about careers in business and technology. The program aims to help youths understand Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and its impact on businesses and everyday life. ERP refers to automation and integration of a company’s core business to help focus on effectiveness and simplified success.
The program is sponsored by General Motors, SAP University Alliances and the Enterprise Systems Student Union (ESSU).
