The Gokongwei Brothers Foundation (GBF) which is also supported by the JG Summit Holdings Inc., signed a memorandum of agreement (MoA) with the De La Salle University-Dasmarñas (DLSU-D) in a bid to strengthen the mission of equipping institutions that explore new methods of learning and information.
This initiative aims to provide training and internship for DLSU-D’s teaching staff for practical application through the SAP University Alliances Program (SAP-UA), a global initiative that helps more than 3,500 institutes in over 113 countries to incorporate the latest SAP technologies into teaching.
Under the MoA, at least 25 faculty and teachers at DLSU-D will undergo a training course on the SAP S/4HANA, a modern ERP system that utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) for business processes in the cloud or on-premise. DLSU-D professors will also be invited for on-site training in JG Summit Holdings to experience SAP S/4HAHA on-hand, supporting them to educate next-generation talents with SAP skills for the intelligent enterprise and the experience economy.
The SAP-UA will also provide opportunities for DLSU-UA to engage with SAP events, build industry collaborations, launch graduates in the SAP ecosystem, and inspire young thinkers.
This initiative is sponsored by GBF, which has dedicated itself to contributing to the country’s progress by helping educate future professionals, particularly in the fields of science and engineering.
Aside from DLSU-D, the SAP-UA program has been working with top universities in the country, including the University of the Philippines, Mapua Institute of Technology, Far Eastern University, University of Sto. Tomas, AMA Computer University, and Mapúa University, among others.
