An electronic survey created in Google Forms has been used as a research tool.

Depending on the field of study and studies degree, the surveyed students learned ERP system at one of the following subjects: Computer Science in Management (Management - undergraduate), Information Systems and Knowledge Management (Management - Master's graduate) and Integrated Management Systems (ERP) (Management and Production Engineering - graduate). Courses have been conducted in the form of lectures and practical classes in the computer laboratory.

The research results confirm the validity of the use of ERP systems in the academic educational process in the field of management. The quality of courses as well as legitimacy of course realization in computer laboratories have been evaluated positively.
