The Master’s programme in Procurement and Supply Management looks at the legislative, financial, organisational and managerial foundations of a modern procurement system. The procurement system is no longer a simple routine of clerical function. Today’s procurement professionals have to deal with increasingly dynamic markets and rapidly evolving technologies, purchasing tools and techniques. In addition to traditional regulatory obligations, procurement practitioners have to demonstrate their adherence to international agreements in human rights, labour, the environment, and mitigation of corruption.
