Options for Fresh Graduates to get SAP FI or CO Certification


I have prepared one more Graphic Flow for SAP Certification in case of Fresh Graduates.

There are only 3 options for Fresh Graduates for getting certified in SAP Financials or SAP Controlling.

Fresh Graduates – MBA/CA/ICWA/M.Com/B.Com
   SAP Functional Module – Financials & Controlling
Option 1
                      SAP University Alliance

If your College or University is Registered as an Member in SAP University Alliance, then you have a chance for Higher Education – SAP – Associate Level.

Note: If this option is not working for you then you have to try for option 2

Option 2
     SAP Education Partners – Authorized Centers

If your College or University is not Registered in with SAP University Alliance, then you have this option for getting Training & Certification – Associate Level.

Note: If you are not willing to opt this Option 2 then you have another Option 3.

Option 3
        SAP Companies Customers/Partners – Jobs
You need to join Entry Level – SAP Support/Implementation and work for about 2 years/ 3 Years. After gaining SAP Project Experience, You have the option of Appearing for SAP Professional Certification at the cost of your SAP Company.
Note: This option will work based on Fresher Role Requirement without Certification in SAP Companies. It will surely take long time.

If Option 1 or Option 2 has worked out for you then you have a chance to get entry into SAP Project Roles “Entry Level” either in Partner or Customer. Gain SAP End to End Cycle Implementation/Support experience and appear for SAP Professional Certification directly.

Option 1 and Option 2 are the Foundation Stone for your SAP Career. This sounds for me as Fast Track.

Coming to Option 3, this will take more time when compared to Option 1 or 2. If you are willing to go for Option 3 then You need to put lot of efforts and home work to be done to attract SAP Companies. This option is also a Foundation Stone but it will surely take time.

So Decision is left up to you now. I have given 3 Choices for your First SAP Career.

I hope this will be useful for every beginner of SAP specially Graduates.
