This thread is related to education and career, so I don't really know which category it belongs to, most probably more to career as after all my concern is still my career.
I am a graduate from a local college, holding a Coventry University computer science degree certificate. With 1 year++ working experience in microsoft programming.
Currently I am thinking of stepping into SAP jobs. So I plan to go for SAP course. But at the same time, I am planning to migrate to Australia with my family, which might happen after 2-3 years later.
So what I am worry is that with a Malaysia SAP certificate, it is not recognised in Australia, could it be? And what if I pursue my SAP certificate in Singapore, will it be better? Is there a big gap for the fee difference if I pursue my SAP certificate in Malaysia, Singapore, or Australia?
Why I am pursuing SAP certificate is because I noticed that for a programmer, when you become a project manager after maybe 10 years, and your salary will be most likely about RM10k. But for SAP programmer they can gain up to RM8k-RM12k already, not to talk about their functional managers, and the senior executive level staff.
Currently there is 1 company offering me to be SAP Service Desk Analyst for MM module. It is good to start SAP career for a person without SAP certificate like me. But after interviewing me, they requested me to choose whether MM or BW, they claimed that BW is much more closer to me as I am with programming knowledge, I need to generate reports with SQL, and will get to touch some programming coding soon when there is a new project coming in, while for MM I will only stick to helping the users to analyst their problem and liase with the vendor and they will fix it for us. As far as I'm concerned, MM and SD is with higher demand in the market right? I am worried that BW is not so demanded. So, what do you guys think?
Another question is, is SAP certificate holders are with high demand in Australia? In Malaysia, I think it is with quite high demand on these people...
Is it worth to really go for SAP certificate?
Thanks in advance.

To go for SAP? Malaysia, Singapore, or Australia?
