With offices in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, SBS Group provides mid-market accounting & technology solutions to companies along the East Coast. The Academic Alliance program connects partners, customers and academic institutions that are passionate about technology and utilize the Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains) accounting package in their business or curriculum.

Academic institutions receive free software, technical support, online training and the ability to customize accounting, operations and supply chain management courses with Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains). Microsoft Dynamics™ partners and customers host educated internship programs, participate as guest speakers and share ideas amongst innovative peers. SBS Group will assist Bloomsburg University with filling internship positions and creating independent study projects for students. Bloomsburg will help provide SBS with highly compatible candidates and opportunities for its staff to guest lecture.

Bloomsburg has been an active member of the Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance since 2005 and received Microsoft’s Pinnacle Award for Excellence in Education in 2007 based on its efforts to utilize Dynamics enterprise software to stimulate transformation of its business curriculum. Dr. John Grandzol, professor of management and leader of the interdisciplinary faculty team identifying opportunities for business process orientation supported by ERP, emphasizes the need for business education to reflect current business environments having fully integrated process and systems approaches: “We expect this partnership will provide further insights into the ways businesses really work for faculty who design and deliver curriculum, while offering additional opportunities for our students to gain first-hand experience through various internships. SBS Group’s broad range of services and extensive client network will help us realize these goals.”
“Over the past few years, SBS has grown its internship program to include our marketing, consulting and development departments. We are excited to expand the program and look forward to working with a forward-thinking institution like Bloomsburg University,” states James R. Bowman, Jr., President of SBS Group.
