CO (Management Accounting) 

Usually a financial SAP consultant would study both FI and CO modules as in practice they go hand in hand. Since there are many topics to cover in the financial subject, it is divided into 2 different modules, and many people specialised in either one. In compared to the FI module, CO module looks deeper into the management side of company's finances. Such areas include: Costs, overhead management, profit planning, to name a few. A basic knowledge and interest for accounting would be advantages.

PP (Production Planning and Manufacturing)

Large corporations who produced their own goods from raw materials are more likely to have a PP consultant. Such areas the PP consultant covers are: Material Planning, material staging and withdrawal, MRP to name a few. Similar to MM, PP does not require any background knowledge. 

SD (Sales and Distribution) 

The module SD, MM and PP have interconnected subjects. When you study one of these modules, you will more or less get exposed to some learning materials to the other two modules. An SD consultant would handle the Sales and Distribution department of the company within the SAP system. They will cover areas such as: creating and processing sales order, contracts, credit memo processing and returns processing, to name a few. No background knowledge is required to specialize in this module. 

HCM (Human Capital Management) 

Human capital management is also an important part of a company similar to product management and finance management. To achieve effectiveness within a company all sectors/departments must be taken into account including HR. A HCM consultant deals would handle the human resources section of the company within the SAP system. This section covers areas such as: employee education and training, time data, remuneration adjustments, reporting, to name a few. A HR background would be beneficial but not compulsory. 

These are the 7 core modules that an SAP consultant must complete when first embarking their SAP career.
