Semester Options and Dates

How to Choose the Right Delivery Model

We understand that not every individual or organization is created equal, which is why our programs are not delivered on a one-size-fits-all model. Instead, to accommodate different preferences, all SIG University programs (CSP, CSMP, C3PRMP and CIAP) are offered online in three different delivery models:


Open Cohort Semester

  • Offered at regular intervals throughout the year (see schedule below)
  • Lessons assigned weekly online via our Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Discussion forums moderated each week of the program by expert faculty


Closed Cohort Semester

  • Offered privately for teams of 20 or more and can start at any time
  • Lessons assigned at a frequency of your choosing online via our Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Discussion forums can either be unmoderated or moderated by your own organization's leaders


Self-Paced Semester

  • This option is available for those with special circumstances needing a more relaxed or accelerated pace (Subject to Approval)
  • Each learning path of the program is assigned upfront via our Learning Management System (LMS)
  • Discussion forums are unmoderated


Future Open Cohort Semester Start Dates

SIG University recommends joining an open cohort semester whenever possible.  Not only will students benefit from the classroom's discussion forum being moderated by our expert faculty, but they will also be able to network with classmates across functions and industries. This helps students learn how peers handle different sourcing challenges in other organizations and provides opportunities to build a stronger professional network and support system.

Open cohort semesters simulate a real classroom experience through engagement with faculty and classmates. Below is a listing of future open cohort semesters for all SIG University programs (CSP, CSMP, C3PRMP, and CIAP) that you can enroll in.
