Program description

Procurement Law, Strategy and Practice by Distance Learning

This innovative distance learning program will equip students with the key skills required to occupy senior level positions within public and private sector procurement. Our course is one of the few Master's programs to combine procuremnt law and procurement strategy. It ahas also been specifically designed to be delivered entirely through distance learning.

You will gain a Masters-level qualification with a specialisation in procurement law, strategy and practice, which will provide a springboard for those already working in procurement-related professions to accelerate their career progression. Those who desire to pursue a career in this area will be provided with a unique opportunity to rapidly elevate their understanding and to enter the profession at a senior level.
