 Our new innovative Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) study programme concentrates on enterprise resource planning (ERP), primarily by the use of industry-leading SAP software solutions. ERP refers to the integrated management of core business processes in real-time and mediated by software, for instance, SAP, which is an integrated business solution software and used by close to 90% of the largest companies in the world. All departments and functions across a company are integrated into a single system. Our one-of-a-kind business management programme aims at providing specialised ERP expertise together with the know-how in modern business management.  The programme has an international scope, and with its exclusive content, it aims to educate professionals with high-demand expertise for the future labour markets and business needs. And, the demand for ERP skilled employees is rising all the time.

 The enterprise resource planning lecturers at Centria are SAP certified, and we also offer the students a chance to develop the knowledge and skills required for an SAP certification (TERP10). After that, the students are also able to build their knowledge and skills further in a specialised SAP area. As a member of the SAP University Alliance, Centria can provide its students with access to the SAP Business Suite family of software solutions. This enables to put classroom theory into practice through demonstrations, exercises, case studies, and research. Centria uses special case studies to support practical learning and continuously develops its ERP learning environments.
