The alliance will allow students from the MSc in Management Information Systems to become thoroughly acquainted with SAP enterprise software, a skill in high demand in the marketplace, but very difficult to achieve at the graduate level.
Mr Gollogly comments: ‘SAP is very pleased to have an alliance with the School of Management in Surrey. Because of SAP’s almost universal presence in businesses in the UK and indeed the world, there is a constant demand of ‘SAP aware’ graduate students. High quality business schools such as Surrey are able to train students in the use of SAP software and the changes in business processes enabled by SAP software.’
Professor Hans van der Heijden comments: ‘We are delighted to be able to equip our students with an understanding of one of the most popular and widely used software applications in the real world. Few universities in London and the South-East are able to do so and we are most pleased to be part of SAP’s exclusive alliance programme.’
The alliance will start off at Surrey in the academic year 2006/2007 with the integration of SAP software in the module Business Process Management. This module is unique to the Master in Management Information Systems (MIS), and will focus on the use of SAP in a business process context. At a later stage also the Surrey MBA students will be offered the opportunity to work with SAP software.
The School of Management at Surrey is one of only 25 universities in the United Kingdom that are part of the SAP alliance programme. It follows recent evidence of the quality of Surrey as one of only 10 management schools in the UK that have been awarded accreditation by the American Association of Colleges and Schools of Business (AACSB).

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.
Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
