Procurement Training and Certifications

How SIG University Builds Value for Sourcing and Procurement Teams

In today’s increasingly competitive business landscape, companies need top talent with the soft skills, analytical skills, financial proficiency, and technical acumen to make strategic decisions. Fortune 500 and Global 1000 organizations recognize a SIG University certification as a key differentiator when hiring top talent or promoting from within.

High-performing procurement teams look to our practitioner faculty, who are known innovators and senior-level executives, to develop tomorrow’s best practices and methodologies. 

SIG University was created at the request of SIG members who saw an educational training gap for today’s procurement workforce. It is founded on the ideals of elevating sourcing and risk professionals to deliver strategic value to organizations. SIG University is an inclusive, internationally recognized online university with a mission of advancing the sourcing and risk management industries and transforming careers.
