#youlearn SAP – Granada
Purpose of the Program
Companies around the world are digitizing their procedures to achieve both cost reduction and more satisfied customers. The challenge is to digitally connect all company activities and coordinate them with those of suppliers and clients. Reorganizing a company digitally requires both specific software to assist in the process and qualified individuals to guide those changes. Utilizing specialized programs in digitization is within reach of any university-educated person with interest, but it requires certain specific training. Considering the need for professionals with this profile, there is a very attractive job opportunity for individuals trained in this field.
If you visit job portals or look at job offers from the most attractive companies, you will see that there are many searches for individuals with SAP training. SAP is the largest European software company, and its products are the most widely used platform in the world for digital flow management in companies. Jobs for specialists in this software often offer attractive salaries and conditions, as well as opening doors to opportunities in a variety of sectors and activities.
The #youlearnSAP – Granada program aims to provide highly practical training and professional experience to students and recent graduates interested in learning how to use SAP to work in helping organize companies and activities digitally. You can apply for this program regardless of the degree you have previously studied, if you are enthusiastic about the professional possibilities in this field and have an advanced level of language proficiency.
