About this unit

This undergraduate unit from RMIT University explores Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems and how enterprise systems function within business operations. An ERP system merges a number of computer-based applications into a single package, and ERPs are becoming increasingly prominent in medium-to-large organisations, due to increased efficiency in delivering goods and services to customers. SAP software will be a component of this unit, and used in workshops.

This online unit, delivered by Open Universities Australia, also covers general business management, including problem solving, techniques and language common in this field, and imparts an understanding of basic legal concepts; critical analysis and problem setting and solving abilities, to allow for the forecasting and proposing of cost effective plans integrated into functional business activities; the development of your communication capabilities at a strategic level; and growth of your teamwork and leadership abilities.

This unit is assessed through two assignments and a case study assignment.
