Our organization offer its members the latest SAP modules to gain useful experience to enhance their future career either in Business or in IT. These tools allow our members to develop skills necessary to excel in the business environment. Each semester, we work on SAP projects to gain a hands on experience of what it’s like to work with SAP systems.
The SAP Club was started in the Fall of 2011 by students with the desire to further their SAP skill set. AP club members immediately began attending SAP sponsored events and competing against schools like Berkley, Stanford, and Notre Dame. In the Fall of 2016, the SAP Club partnered with both the University Alliance and the Chico State SAP Competence Center to lay the foundation for NextGen Consulting.
