Abstract: Given the high adoption rate of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software in both large as well as smaller companies, the majority of economics and business students will almost certainly be confronted with ERP technology in their professional careers, either as an end user or as a manager. Nevertheless, the implementation of ERP systems into existing curricula for economics and business students seems to evolve slowly, partially due to a variety of problems that accompany such an implementation. This article aims at providing teachers with a handle to address the issue of implementing ERP systems in a business curriculum.
Keywords: business curriculum; ERP education; ERP systems; integration; enterprise resource planning; ERP teaching; economics students; business students.
