Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) Approach:
Lectures will deliver core material and will
cover LOs 1 - 4. Tutorials and practical sessions using SAP software are used to help develop a deeper
understanding of module content and the practical application of what is learnt. Embedding of
Employability /PDP/scholarship skills The employability of the students is considerably enhanced by this
module as it addresses the core area of Enterprise Information Systems that is very much in demand.
Employers are finding it very difficult to find people with this skill set. Importantly students will receive
considerable practical exposure to the SAP R/3 environment which is the marketing leading business
management system. This will provide students with a competitive edge in the market place. In addition
as part of this module students will also have the opportunity to obtain SAP certification that will enable
students to obtain a head start in their careers

Formative Assessment:
Assessment (formative and summative) This module is
assessed by individual assessments LOs 1 & 2 and a centrally timetabled examination (LOs 1, 2, 3 &
4). The first assessment will require students to undertake individual research and analysis. Students will
participate in a group exercise as part of their first assessment. The individual assessment will receive
50% of the student's module mark and it will include analysis of issues in business process
management and the role of ERP systems. This component addresses LOs 1 & 2. The examination will
be two hours long and invite students to answer two questions from a choice of 5. It will address LOs
1,2,3 & 4. Research/teaching linkages The module leader has undertaken professional development in
this area, as have other members of the teaching team. Guest speakers from industry will also contribute
their professional expertise.
