What is Enterprise Resource Planning with Oracle?
Enterprise resource planning, or ERP, is the business function that uses software and other information systems to integrate day-to-day business processes such as accounting, procurement, project management, and manufacturing. ERP systems collect and filter information from multiple sources, eliminating duplication and creating data integrity. This results in greater efficiency, lower operational costs, collaboration across business units, and consistent business infrastructure. Oracle is a leading provider of software- and cloud-based ERP systems. This certificate is excellent preparation for the examination required to become an Oracle E-Business Suite Advanced Supply Chain Planning Consultant Certified Expert.

The objectives of the university’s academic advising program are to help advisees identify and achieve their academic goals, to promote their intellectual discovery, and to encourage students to take advantage of both in-and out-of class educational opportunities in order that they become self-directed learners and decision makers.
Both advisers and advisees share responsibility for making the advising relationship succeed. By encouraging their advisees to become engaged in their education, to meet their educational goals, and to develop the habit of learning, advisers assume a significant educational role. The advisee’s unit of enrollment will provide each advisee with a primary academic adviser, the information needed to plan the chosen program of study, and referrals to other specialized resources.
