SAP Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) has entered a partnership agreement with The University of Queensland (UQ) to offer SAP uAcademy courses to Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and business students.
The partnership is a strategic move by SAP to increase students’ industry skills and give them greater opportunities in the workplace.
UQ’s head of the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering (ITEE), Professor Paul Strooper, said the collaboration will allow UQ to offer their students comprehensive training on SAP solutions in a convenient and cost-effective manner.
“The skills gained through uAcademy will not only support the Queensland workforce, but also Australian and global industry demands,” he said.
Under the uAcademy program, UQ students are provided with access to a self-paced learning environment, enabling them to achieve expertise in specific SAP solution areas.
SAP Education director, Francesca Salvo, said that as SAP continues to innovate, new technologies are launched into the marketplace and resources must be provided to manage these.
“Mobility, database, applications development and cloud computing are seen as key skills in the ever-changing business environment,” she said.
“Partnering with the University of Queensland to provide the SAP uAcademy program will increase the much-needed SAP-skilled workforce in Queensland.”
