BU Implementation Leadership Team

The move to CapmusNexus as Brandon University’s new ERP is one of the largest projects in BU’s history. This transformation, which will be conducted with care over a period of years, will bring BU up to current industry standard for postsecondary education, meeting the expectations of today’s students, faculty and staff. It will also ensure that our systems remain current for years into the future.

We have brought together people from across campus, as well as partners with Anthology (makers of CampusNexus) and CampusWorks (an exclusively higher-ed consulting and services firm) to help us successfully manage this important transformation.
