Program Overview

The Certified International Purchasing Manager (CIPM) is designed for current and future purchasing & supply chain professionals and managers, reflecting levels of understanding and of competence needed to assume responsibility for managing purchasing & supply chain operations at the international level. It is based on a Learning System (LS) developed by the International Trade Centre (ITC), and conducted by the prestigious International Purchasing and Supply Chain Management Institute.
