What SAP should I focus on?

Hi all. I am a bit lost on my choices so I would thank your advice.

First of all, I'd like to introduce my background:

I have a BBA, and after it, I worked two and a half years in Investment Banking (one in Back Office [operations] and one and a half in Front Office [sales and project finance]). I decided I wanted to try something different, so I switched to Business Development (Sales) in a startup. Wrong change.

There I noticed that cold calling or equivalent are not my things, but I do like the commercial department, maybe Project Management?

Now I would like your advice: I believe Strategy consulting may be a good fit (Company strategy, project development and it is dynamic). I was thinking to focus into the commercial area of financial companies (banks, ...).

Should I go for: SAP S/4 HANA SD, SAP S/4 HANA FI or SAP BW/4 HANA? I want it as a complement to my change.

Any other advice/ opinion is welcome!

Thanks in advance!!

Hi

Based on your question, may be SAP Treasury and Risk in Finance area could be of interest to you. The below learning journey might be of help:

So, you don't have any Finance expertise or CA kind of education you have done back office stuffs which are I can say close to PMO kind of things just like that okay! So, you can learn anything that suits your interest because you do not have any skill that is suited for any module.

But why SAP? Explore stuffs like Salesforce, Workday, Concur or SAP modules if that interests you. If you were a MBA in Sales or had similar experience I could have said go for SAP SD. But looking at what you said about your background, you can even learn ABAP and start as a Developer if that interests you. Just do what suits you and do not start experimenting because SAP education is damn expensive and also no need to waste time that's again sorry but my personal suggestion. Do research pick something that has good short term and long term job scope and commit to it.

All the best,
