DACH Academic Board

What is the SAP Academic Board DACH?


The SAP Academic Board DACH acts as a "trusted advisor" on the process of continuous improvement of the SAP UA program for SAP-related teaching, research and education.


The SAP Academic Board DACH provides feedback on new offers from SAP UA in terms of relevance, implementation capability and benefits. In addition, it makes its own suggestions as to which offers SAP UA or UCC / ACC should include in new curricula and how the know-how transfer to the lecturers can take place.


Thus, the SAP Academic Board has a direct influence on the orientation, content and design of the SAP UA program.


At the same time, the SAP Academic Board DACH should be the mouthpiece and representative of all lecturers in the UA program in the DACH region. For this purpose, regular communication and possibilities for articulating interests and exchanging information with each other should be established.



How does the SAP Academic Board DACH perform its tasks and how much effort is involved?


The SAP Academic Board DACH meets three times a year all day for a physical meeting - once again as part of the annual SAP Academic Conference EMEA.


In addition, there is a telephone conference once a month on current topics.
