The SAP Users’ Group (SUG) at UTD was established in August 2004 and has grown quickly ever since. SUG prepares students for careers in accounting, sales, marketing, business operations, computer information technology, and other professions.

The vision of SAP Users’ Group (SUG) at UTD is to educate students through Enterprise Systems and SAP, offer students opportunities to network with industry professionals and help students kickstart a career in Enterprise Systems and SAP.


The mission of SUG is to help students establish a future career in SAP or other enterprise E-Business platforms as a systems user, in IT systems support, in consulting, systems evaluation, or other career opportunities that become available as enterprise systems and SAP evolve.
