Although much research has been done on implementing ERP systems outside of academia, there is much less research on implementing these systems in the Higher Education field. The goal of this paper is to identify the unique challenges of rolling out such a system in a Higher Education environment at a large U.S. University. Through the use of literature review and case study, I want to highlight the unique issues related to implementing an ERP system at a large, U.S. university, but also look deeper at issues specific to the school. In addition, I wanted to look at implementations at similar-sized universities and look for similarities and differences in regard to whether they had a successful roll out or not.
