National Public Policy Procurement Unit (NPPPU) endorses MBS in Strategic Procurement

6th May 2009

The National Public Policy Procurement Unit (NPPPU) in the Department of Finance is endorsing the MBS in Strategic Procurement provided by DCU Business School.

The NPPPU encourages public and private sector organisations to propose and support candidates involved in procurement in their organisations for inclusion in the programme. The NPPPU also encourages individuals who are interested in developing their procurement skills and capabilities to enrol in the programme.

The MBS in Strategic Procurement is the first programme of its kind in Ireland and one of only two such programmes in Europe, which builds the capacity for strategic thinking in procurement and aims to meet the changing skills requirements for professionals either engaged in or working closely with the procurement function.

The programme is offered on a part-time basis over two years, commencing in autumn, and is delivered by block release on three days per month, i.e., Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Graduates of the MBS in Strategic Procurement will be eligible to apply for full membership of The Irish Institute of Purchasing and Materials Management (IIPMM).
