Hi! First, you have picked a great university and program. One of the professors, Paul Hawking (http://www.business.vu.edu.au/staff/paulhawking/) is an SAP Mentor and big friend to the University Alliances Community...so that's a good start.
As for you... based on your note you have at least 3-years of work experience. The key is for you to look at your Masters in ERP as a building block to many great things. If you keep an eye on growth businesses along with current and emerging trends (i.e. Mobility, Business Analytics, HANA, Cloud, etc.) that you will see an abundance of opportunities.
Manufacturing is part of the global supply chain and a ecosystem. Assess all parts and see where you have the best opportunities.
I'd suggest that you look at university alumni and contacts... look for opportunities to network (i.e. event mixers) and learn from successful colleagues in the areas where you have interests.
If you take 1 step forward at a time you'll see that an SAP-related degree brings you closer to how businsses are run and as a result you are on the right track for good things to come.
In closing...combine your skills, education, and work experiences. Stay hungry and look forways to apply what you know now and what you will soon learn.
