This chapter describes the integration of the SAP R/3 system into courses across the undergraduate and graduate business curriculum at Bentley College. It argues that the integration of the SAP R/3 system into existing business courses, rather than creating standalone courses covering enterprise systems concepts, is a preferable way to immerse students in information technology issues and help them understand how enterprise systems have significantly transformed the workplace. The authors describe the processes used to train faculty, develop and test curriculum materials, and coordinate the integration effort. Learning objectives and SAP R/3 curricular content are described for MBA, accounting, and finance courses.
