Tell us a bit about yourself.
I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina and am the SAP UA Coordinator and Trainer for ERP programs at our School of Business.
Share a bit about your SAP and UAC history.
We first connected with SAP UA in 2009. By 2010 we launched the first ERP course for our Business students. I was first introduced to the SAP Community Network and the University Alliances Community (UAC) during our professor training course in 2009, and ever since, I have believed the UAC is extremely important for everyone involved in the program. It provides University Alliances information and regular updates which I view on a weekly basis.
We use the UA course library primarily to adapt and work in Spanish with courses defined by "top notch" professors who have years of hands on experience. The UAC portal is also great for accessing videos and content which makes teaching easier. These assets narrow the theory to the actual experiences. These materials make explaining the SAP of today and the future much livelier, especially for HANA, Business ByDesign and Mobility.
What do you like most about the University Alliances Community on the new Jive platform? How does this help improve your regular UAC activities?
Collaboration for students, faculty members, experts, and consultants is key to the future success of every business. Global companies will benefit from the UAC’s impact and support of the ever-expanding University Alliances program as well as the experiences and skills it is developing in the next generation.
How can (or do) your students benefit from the UAC?
Even if the UAC is not yet available in Spanish, our students benefit from the experiences and information that shows how important the program has become all over the world.
