The ESEFA ES Fundamentals curriculum was taught at the University of Cape Town during early February 2015 to students registered in the new Postgraduate Diploma in Public Sector Accounting. The course facilitators were Associate Professor Lisa Seymour, Ms Anjali Ramburn and Mr Gwamaka Mwalemba. This was the first time that the content was integrated into an Accounting qualification. According to Professor Lisa Seymour the students were very positive about the course content and the SAP UA Certificate of Proficiency and felt that they would gain a competitive advantage as job seekers because of it. They rated the exercises on the SAP ERP system as being very helpful in terms of understanding the business processes performed on Enterprise Systems.
