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).

Researchers from the University of Basel have reported a new method that allows the physical state of just a few atoms or molecules within a network to be controlled. It is based on the spontaneous self-organization of molecules into extensive networks with pores about one nanometer in size. In the journal ‘small’, the physicists reported on their investigations, which could be of particular importance for the development of new storage devices.
Around the world, researchers are attempting to shrink data storage devices to achieve as large a storage capacity in as small a space as possible. In almost...
The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.
Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.
The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...
A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.
Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
