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).

Physicists working with researcher Oriol Romero-Isart devised a new simple scheme to theoretically generate arbitrarily short and focused electromagnetic fields. This new tool could be used for precise sensing and in microscopy.
Microwaves, heat radiation, light and X-radiation are examples for electromagnetic waves. Many applications require to focus the electromagnetic fields to...
Strong light-matter coupling in these semiconducting tubes may hold the key to electrically pumped lasers
Light-matter quasi-particles can be generated electrically in semiconducting carbon nanotubes. Material scientists and physicists from Heidelberg University...
Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.
At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...
3-D shape acquisition using water displacement as the shape sensor for the reconstruction of complex objects
A global team of computer scientists and engineers have developed an innovative technique that more completely reconstructs challenging 3D objects. An ancient...
Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
