  • Interact directly with companies and organizations that use the SAP enterprise system through our partnership with the Florida Chapter of America's SAP User Group (ASUG)
  • Discuss curricular issues and approaches on how to meet the demands of changing information technologies and methods
  • Provide a formal mechanism for students to interact with IT industry leaders
  • Provide access to systems and curricular materials through programs such as the SAP University Alliance, Microsoft Academic Alliance, Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance and IBM Academic Initiative
Our industry partners:
