Decisive qualifications for Purchasing Managers
The demands and expectations of supply managers are increasing steadily. In addition to price and cost management, supply security, quality, innovative sourcing, and shorter time-to-market are also essential. To be more concise: it comes down to doing everything possible to enhance corporate competitiveness.
Accordingly, it can be expected that all players in Purchasing and Supply Management are capable of utilising proven, qualified and effective ideas, concepts, and solutions. The required qualifications stem from several competencies: in addition to fundamental specialty knowledge, management and social skills also determine success and failure. Successful Purchasing Managers are able to efficiently combine the synergies of individual topics for the benefit of overall corporate objectives.
In order to address these challenges, ISCM offers an executive education programme with an internationally recognised certificate: the "Certified Purchasing Manager" in cooperation with the EBS Business School.
