"If the purchasing function really wants to count as a value-added within the organisation, the very first priority is to map out strategic purchasing. This map will be dependent on the maturity of the lifecycle of the purchasing department and the overall structure of the organisation. This two-day programme helps to get a full grasp of purchasing through practical examples and the exchange of best practices, all serving as a stepping stone to apply the concepts and models learned."

"I thoroughly enjoyed Vlerick's programme on Purchasing Management. This well-organised course offers fascinating insights into today's world of Procurement and Supply Chain Management. The approach is theoretical and practical at the same time. Real-life cases are being used as a starting point for lively discussions. The interaction with colleagues coming from different industries and from all over the world makes the course even more interesting."
