Savannah Business Journal Staff Report

February 27, 2019 - Registration is now open for The Procurement & Supply Management Leadership Certificate at Georgia-Tech Savannah, and will be offered for the first time Monday, March 25 through Friday March 29, 2019. 

“In keeping with our mission of bringing our world to Savannah, we’re pleased to bring a successful existing certificate program from Atlanta to the Savannah campus for the benefit of the coastal community. We hope to leave an impact on procurement and business professionals alike,” says Diane Lee, Georgia Tech-Savannah Executive Director.

In order to earn the certificate, all 3 core courses may be taken “bootcamp-style” in one week, or taken individually over time. The courses are designed to help sourcing, planning and procurement professionals successfully navigate the complexities, risks and rewards of the modern global sourcing environment. In addition, participants will develop critical skills in order to reduce the total landed cost of materials, gain understanding of negotiation philosophies, and streamline executive communication. No prerequisites are required for these courses, and we encourage procurement professionals of all experience levels to register.

The certificate consists of these 3 core courses, plus an elective:

Bid Package Development and Supplier Selection -

1.5 days / March 25-26, 2019

Contracting Excellence -

1.5 days / March 26-27, 2019

Essential Principles of Negotiations -

2 days / March 28-29, 2019

This course is also great for sales professionals wanting to hone their skills. 

Each course is a great standalone learning opportunity, and they may all be combined to earn The Procurement & Supply Management Leadership Certificate. An elective may be selected from one of many courses GTPE offers in-person and online.
