Eighteen Palestinian students have graduated from SAP's Young Professional Program, which aims to prepare graduates for careers in the technology sector.

The students completed a two-month training program, which included SAP software knowledge certification and soft skills including Design Thinking and communication & presentation techniques. The graduates are now certified as SAP Associate Consultants in SAP Business One, SAP's ERP for the SMB sector.

SAP's Young Professional Program in Ramallah was delivered and sponsored mainly by global technology company SAP in collaboration with the Office of the Quartet as well as the Palestine Ministry of Telecommunications and IT. It was co-funded by USAID's Complete Project that strengthens Palestine's economic competitiveness as well as by SAP Global Corporate Social Responsibility.

In the MENA region, over 760 Arab nationals have graduated from the program so far, with over 90% gaining employment, largely within the SAP ecosystem.

"Palestinian university graduates want to make a difference, and SAP's Young Professional Program empowers the region's talents, enables them to support the Middle East's Digital Economy, and attract multinationals to Palestine," said John Clarke, deputy head of the Office of the Quartet.

"The Young Professional Program supports Palestinians landing Digital Economy careers, growing Palestine's implementers, and builds onto our University Alliances partnerships that integrate technology in education," added Marita Mitschein, managing director of the SAP Training and Development Institute.
