ERP systems are characterized by a high degree of complexity what is challenging to replicate in the classroom environment. However, there is a strong industry demand for students having ERP training during their studies at universities. This paper reports a joint effort of University of Rostock and Riga Technical University to enhance introductory ERP training by introducing an internationalization dimension in the standard curriculum. Both universities collaborated to develop an international ERP case study as an extension of the SAP ERP Global Bikes Incorporated case study. The training approach, study materials and appropriate technical environment have been developed. The international ERP case study is performed at both universities where students work collaboratively on running business processes in the SAP ERP system. Students\textbackslashtextquoteright teams at each university are responsible for business process activities assigned to them and they are jointly responsible for completing the process. The case study execution observations and students\textbackslashtextquoteright evaluations suggest that the international ERP provides a good insight on the real-life challenges associated in using the ERP systems in the international context.
