Management Certificate in Public Procurement


Procurement is a specialty with a growing demand within all three sectors – public, private and nonprofit. It is also one of the better paid sub-fields in public administration. A Management Certificate in Public Procurement (MCPP) offers a perfect opportunity for anyone interested in entering the field to obtain the training and education needed.

The MCPP would also be highly beneficial for anyone already in public service, especially managers, who seeks to strategically place themselves for moving up the career ladder. The MCPP offers rigorous education on the latest local, national and international procurement trends and practices. The MCPP is not just a procurement certificate – it is much more.
