The purchasing function is at the strategic heart of most firms; up to 70% of company spend is made through purchasing. It requires executives with a cross-functional perspective to synthesize functional knowledge from different parts of the company. The EIPM Executive MBA enables people to understand and act as leaders within this function.
What I most valued was the quality of the education at the EIPM. I could immediately implement in my Company’s business the tools and knowledge I acquired during the MBA. I am currently applying the development of purchasing strategy management and strategy planning based of the Project I developed within the MBA.
Thank you to the EIPM team to leverage Purchasing expertise and network in this fast changing world!
The most efficient way to run the assessment is to treat it as a team project. This teamwork approach permits the most detailed insight into all the aspects of procurement covered by the assessment, as well as accurate visibility of the maturity and deployment of processes and the level of results achieved. This is by far the best way to collect facts, data and evidence.
The EIPM Executive MBA specialised in purchasing is a truly challenging MBA! Attending the program while working full time required much dedication. However, it also allowed me to step back from the day to day and exchange ideas with successful people from many different industries and experiences. I was impressed with the quality of the professors who are talented and committed to provide global perspectives and forward-thinking applications to business issues.
EIPM is a great way and environment to develop and share expertise in purchasing, grow business performance and widen knowledge. Friendly and nice atmosphere, theory and practice mix together in a powerful enabler.
I appreciate the advanced research and findings sharing from EIPM and its value to the global Purchasing community.
The value created by the education here can improve the society in general and the purchasing professionals in particular. Thank you for your passion and for your openness to share it with us.
EIPM is the European reference in terms of Purchasing Best Practices sharing and networking.
EIPM is very unique! Once you´ve done your MBA at the EIPM, you are connected. The EIPM itself, it´s employees, management and the dedicated and professional culture gets into your blood and stays there. The EIPM actually becomes a major part of one's life and "a kind of family to you". No less, no more. I´m always happy to follow and occasionally to visit the EIPM since I´ve graduated in 2001!
The reason for pursuing an Executive MBA was to put myself once again in a learning environment and also an opportunity to network and meet people from different backgrounds and experiences while acquiring the qualifications. As a plus, the part-time programme is flexible and I was not away from work for a long time, so I could study and work simultaneously.
The courses helped me to look at my job from a bird’s eye view. As managers, we are often at risk of being absorbed by too many details. Professors helped us to improve our ability to see the big picture and the specifics at the same time. One of them used to say “Take the Helicopter view!” That’s something that I have kept ever since.
The EIPM assessment process is a professional and impressive tool, and it is organized by a neutral organisation. This provides unbiased information about our sourcing operations. It is important to use the feedback as input to further development, but more importantly, this process served as a chance to benchmark our activities against other companies.
To me, EIPM is not just a school, but a home and a family. Aside from the amazing breadth of knowledge transmitted by the professors from famous European business schools, I was touched by their charisma as well.
Each student brings a diverse range of professional and cultural experiences, which complement the theories presented, so that discussions are enlivened and enriched.
