Students enrolled with the Faculty of Administration (Information Systems Division) will learn SYSPRO in new course offering
Vancouver, BC – February 1, 2017
SYSPRO, a global provider of industry-built ERP software, announced today that it will be taught as an accredited course (ADSI-4531), coordinated by Dr. Gérard Fillion, Professor of Management Information Systems (MIS) at the University of Moncton, beginning September 2017. The new course offering will be part of the 2017 curriculum for students enrolled in the Faculty of Administration (Information Systems Division).
With over 800 students enrolled in the Faculty of Administration on an annual basis, the university looked to create a course dedicated to teaching Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Systems, acknowledging the need employers have for ERP-aware graduates joining the workplace. Ten to twenty students are expected to be enrolled in the new course offering (ADSI-4531), which will focus on ERP theory and practicum for MIS students.
“Selecting SYSPRO to teach to our students was an easy choice,” per Gérard Fillion, Professor of MIS at the University of Moncton. “It suited our needs very well, as it was not a large, complicated ERP system, as many of the other systems we reviewed were. It is a top-performing solution and our students will benefit greatly from hands-on experience with SYSPRO, as part of their academic careers—and beyond, as they prepare for careers in management information systems.”
“We are thrilled to be part of the University of Moncton’s education program this year and welcome them to SYSPRO’s Academic Alliance program,” says James Moffatt, President of SYSPRO Canada. “We take pride in the fact that SYSPRO provides industry-built ERP software to leading educational institutions across Canada responsible for training the next generation of manufacturers and distributors. Students armed with the right training and education on critical business systems such as ERP joining the industry within the next 3 to 5 years will quickly contribute to business successes. As a national company that serves customers across Canada, we take pride in serving the Atlantic region, to help local businesses grow and prosper.”
