Abstract: The assumption of this paper is that the decision has been made to offer a course in ERP (enterprise resource planning) to business students. One advisory council interviewed indicated that students should take an ERP course and that the content of the course should include both basic concepts and hands-on activities. The basic concepts should include the impacts on a company implementing an ERP system. Students should experience some hands-on activities that would expose them to cross-functional processes in ERP systems. This paper explores the contents of an ERP course that includes both basic concepts and hands-on activities.

Keywords: enterprise development; enterprise resource planning; ERP courses; ERP course content; ERP education; ERP implementation; business students; higher education.
