The introduction of Enterprise Systems (ES) into the curriculum at Business and IS Faculties and Schools is for many universities a major challenge. However, this problem is in various aspects of special nature: the students' demand is enormous and in many cases product-focused, Enterprise Systems are typically very comprehensive and complex, and knowledge about ES is often missing. By the time textbooks of satisfying quality are available, there are new systems' upgrades and innovation cycles to deal with. The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is comprehensively using the market leading Enterprise System SAP R/3 within its curriculum and is also conducting research in this area. This paper briefly reports on the activities and experiences at QUT, which is now one of the few world-wide mySAP University Application Hosting Centers.
