The MBA in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP/SAP) addresses the needs of international students who want to deepen their knowledge of business processes using enterprise software SAP, one of the world’s leading integrated information system platforms used in multi-national companies and international non-government organizations (NGOs).

This unique MBA for international professionals offers up to 2 years of authorized paid practical training with U.S. companies and extensive financial aid.

Our students also have the option to expand their knowledge in financial and managerial accounting and become fully licensed Certified Public Accountants (CPA) or Certified Management Accountants (CMA).

How It Works

Students in this track start with an 8-month, full-time academic intensive on-campus followed by up to 2 years of credit-bearing, full-time accounting internships with companies in the U.S.

Students engage in ongoing academic coursework to complete their degree requirements. International students can take advantage of training opportunities by means of authorized Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

The entire program is 2.5 years in length.
