A History of Professional Upgrading in Procurement at Tor Vergata

Tor Vergata University of Rome is a leading centre of excellence of procurement training, consulting and research. The Master in Procurement Management broke new grounds fourteen years ago by setting new interdisciplinary standards for procurement knowledge and by uniting the fields of law, economics, and engineering to the curriculum of a knowledgeable procurer. In addition, by creating a unique programme for private, public civilian and military personnel, we introduced the revolutionary concept of the need for a joint debate that would foster greater innovation, responsibility, and sustainability across the Italian economy.

Following that successful initiative, a new Master in Public Procurement Management was created in 2012 with the decisive and generous support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development along with the Italian government. More than 100 public procurers from all over the world have come to Rome for 4 months to follow the interdisciplinary courses taught by some of the most important experts in procurement, including IFI specialists, lawyers, economists, and technical experts.

The University of Rome Tor Vergata also hosts the Proxenter, a research institution that uses consulting services and research to support the advancement of scientific understanding of the motives and improvements linked to procurement practices worldwide.

IMPPM classes are composed of qualified professionals who have at least 5 years of experience in field of public procurement, and come from a variety of countries from Central and Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Following the lecture period in Rome, students continue the remaining part of the Master programme from their home countries as they participate in an E-Learning module, perform a professional traineeship in procurement, and research and write their final thesis to conclude the obligations of the IMPPM programme.
