Business Strategy in a Digital World:
Strategic Management focuses on developing the strategic insight and skills necessary to lead organizations in an ever-changing world. Companies employ consultants to effectively execute their strategies and gain a competitive advantage, and this is inherently linked to IT. We delve into IT depth with SAP, the world’s most widely used business software. Over 24,000 companies globally, including organizations like ASML, Achmea, KPMG, Mammoet, Deloitte, and KLM, utilize SAP.

SAP is particularly appealing if you have a business-related background, as it revolves around optimizing business processes in logistics, HR, sales, marketing, finance, management information, and procurement. Approximately 77% of all global business processes are connected to an SAP system. The Supply Chain branch within SAP is colossal, assisting companies such as Jumbo, Hema, or Heineken in setting up end-to-end goods flows, information, and finances. As a young, talented consultant with knowledge of SAP and associated business processes, you become highly sought after.
