Management in Procurement and Supply: learn about different approaches to management, and discover the theory behind good management techniques
Managing Risks in Supply Chains: learn to identify the level of risk in a supply chain, and find ways to avoid, mitigate and manage risks
Improving the Competitiveness of Supply Chains: learn about processes that can improve business performance through the supply chain
Optional units (choose two):
Category Management in Procurement and Supply: discover different approaches to strategic sourcing and category management, and learn how you can lead the way in making improvements
Sustainability in Supply Chains: learn about different aspects of sustainability and corporate social responsibility, and how they can be applied.
Operations Management in Supply Chains: discover the role that you could play in improving operations management, by building your knowledge across a range of key areas
The CIPS Advanced Diploma is a level 5 qualification and can roughly be compared with a Higher National Diploma (HND) or Foundation Degree. To be enrolled on the CIPS Advanced Diploma, you will need to have completed the CIPS Level 4 Foundation Diploma.
