Abstract—Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems play
very significant role in automated business processes. However,
Private Jordanian universities should think more about
implementing ERP systems to manage their processes and
produce high quality output. Certainly, many research on ERP
adoption have revealed that the organizations often faced many
barriers and the failure rate is very high. In addition, different
research projects conclude that, oftentimes, universities do not
gain the expected benefits from adoption the ERP system. The
universities in Jordan should understand the factors that affect
the acceptance of ERP in order to gain the expect benefits of
ERP. Hence, it is significant to determine the factors affect the
acceptance of ERP in Jordanian Universities.The main objective
of this research is to determine the factors that affect the
acceptance of using ERP by Jordanian universities.
Index Terms—Acceptance, enterprise resource planning, higher education institutions, ERP adoption, TAM model.
