What Our Graduates Are Saying
"The CSP Program is a great source of information to practice day-to-day sourcing business. My top takeaways were learning category segmentation, sourcing strategy development, project management principles and working in a cross functional sourcing team." Catherine Syrard, Certified Sourcing Professional, National Bank of Canada
"One of the smartest ideas Joseph Martinez brought to MUFG Union Bank's procurement program was to encourage everyone in the business unit to complete the SIG University procurement course of study. A common language and understanding of the subject among the 100+ Procurement Unit members was a very valuable and silo-breaking experience. I highly recommend the practice to other companies that are working hard to transform their procurement practices." Thomas Billstein, Certified Sourcing Professional, MUFG
"Great program! The material covered the procurement industry and function well. A true cradle to grave approach to training the various accountabilities. I really liked that it was focused on more than contracting and negotiation strategies but included Project Management, Communication Management and other key components such as Category Management." Allison Brown, Certified Sourcing Professional, Florida Blue
