One would think that academic programs would not be able to grow younger. But not in this case. The well-recognized and successful College of Business and Public Policy (CBPP) Leadership Fellows Program has partnered with Clark Middle School to grow fledgling leaders in Anchorage and Alaska.
The College of Business and Public Policy strives to provide students the best education by making the latest software available for classes. SAP’s enterprise resource planning software, is one such example. SAP ERP incorporates the key business functions of an organization. ConocoPhillips Alaska has made a donation this year that allows CBPP to continue offering SAP software. Tim Green, Manager, Alaska Supply Chain at ConocoPhillips said, “SAP is a critical tool for [ConocoPhillips] and given our efforts to recruit Supply Chain students from UAA, I feel this [is] a worthwhile effort […]”. For information about classes incorporating SAP software, please contact Dr. Alpana Desai.
