About SIG University

SIG University
SIG University was founded on the ideals of elevating sourcing and risk professionals to deliver strategic value to the corporation. SIG University is an inclusive, internationally recognized university with a mission of advancing the sourcing and risk management industries and transforming careers.

SIG University was created at the request of SIG members, who saw an educational training gap for today's workforce. SIG University uses an adult learning model to transfer knowledge and skills to its students. The learning model is focused on the self-directed learner, who has the basic knowledge and skills of the material, is motivated, has good time management skills and has the ability to self-evaluate. The SIG U learning model is supported by a practitioner faculty who currently hold senior leadership positions in sourcing and risk management, allowing them to guide students to a better learning outcome.

Why SIG University?

  1. SIG University offers online certifications focused on implementing sourcing, outsourcing, third-party risk, governance and intelligent automation programs.
  2. The academic rigor of SIG University builds upon current organizational competencies and helps employees excel in their roles.
  3. SIG University has the only industry certifications designed and delivered by actual subject matter expert practitioners.
  4. SIG University's program content has been accredited by professional organizations (NASBA, GARP, Dun & Bradstreet).
