An Enterprise Systems Education for Africa (ESEFA) short course, titled “ES Fundamentals with SAP”, was held in Nairobi, at Strathmore University from 13th July to 24th July 2015 for 36 students, from the Faculty of Information Technology. The course facilitators were Felix Mogesa, Elizabeth Wamicha and Ivan Sang.
Awareness about SAP and the ESEFA program is growing on campus. The participants got motivated to enrol in the course after the announcement of the SAP Dual Study Program, part of the Skills for Africa Initative. The concept behind the Dual Study program is to give scholarship opportunities to 30 fourth year students to do the SAP Associate Financial Consultant certification after a competitive selection process. One requirement is that potential candidates of the Dual Study Program must have successfully completed the ESEFA course. The Dual Study program will be launched in September 2015. This was the third ESEFA Train-the-Student program to be conducted at Strathmore University. Strathmore University anticipates to train over 500 students in the ESEFA program by mid-2016.
