North American Students Hone Business Skills on NetSuite Cloud
A large number of North America students are learning real-world business operation skills on NetSuite Cloud.
A total of thirteen North American university accounting programs have adopted NetSuite as a key component of their degree curricula. Universities including Purdue University and University of California will introduce the NetSuite cloud business solution in the third and fourth year of degree programs. This initiative will help students to have a stronger understanding of business operations and a clear understanding of the power of cloud computing.
“There is no substitute for hands-on experience. NetSuite is a great software service. Utilizing it for sharing with the higher education community provides a great opportunity for effective teaching and student learning,” said Professor Robert Sorensen, Purdue University. “My students can now go to job interviews and say they have experience using NetSuite.”
“The NetSuite service provides students hands-on experience with an ERP system they can access outside the class lab. The cloud-based service allows students to work on NetSuite as much or as little as they choose, at times convenient for them, rather than being constrained by lab availability,” said Professor Jerald M. Savin, FIMC, CMC, CPA, University of California, Los Angeles.
The following Universities have recently embraced the NetSuite cloud program: Purdue University; University of California, Los Angeles; University of Toronto; Arizona State University; Indiana University; Marietta College; University of Hawaii at Manoa; University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Santa Barbara City College; The Citadel; Bellevue University; Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and North Georgia College & State University.
NetSuite notes that universities that have included its coursework have enhanced the learning experience for students. NetSuite is delivered through the cloud, and thus it can be accessed from anywhere on campus.
