Procurement is one of today’s fastest-growing management disciplines, in terms of both managerial activity and strategic importance. Procurement and the management of the entire supply chain have become recognised as a driving corporate business philosophy – a profit creation centre, rather than simply a cost-saving function. Given the ever-changing and the increasing role of the procurement function both nationally and internationally, it is necessary to have a continuous curriculum review process to match the ever-changing role of the procurement function.
There has been a growing demand for professional procurement officers in recent years in Uganda. It is believed that this course will facilitate the creation of a pool of such specialized manpower that will go a long way in addressing/tackling the procurement and logistical issues in governments departments, NGOs and private sector business enterprises.
There has been a review of the Diploma course hence need for reviewing the Bachelors to avoid overlap.
The programme shall target the following categories of people:
- Holders of Advanced Level certificates,
- Diplomas holders or equivalent qualifications from any recognised institution of higher learning.
- Persons who shall have passed Mature Age Entrance Examinations.
- Holders of any non- procurement degree qualification.
