"Executing a Global Sourcing Strategy is a useful course for any sourcing professional who interacts with suppliers outside of his/her own country. While it undoubtedly covers information which seasoned purchasers would have learned by experience, it also offers a fairly detailed examination of the impact of varying cultures in business interaction. Incoterms are aptly and simply explained, consideration is given to risks which are inherent in international procurement and the lessons offer useful information about supplier evaluation and contract monitoring as well. Some of the information is specific to regulations within the USA but as a national of Barbados I still found the course to be relevant and worthwhile."

"The Exemplary Supply Chain Social Responsibility course helped me not just understand the challenges associated with the emerging problems associated with sustainability, globalization and social responsibility, but also showed me how to convince stakeholders to take action and not just run operations 'as usual.'
In addition, this course inspired me to make a difference; after completion of this course I feel more empowered and motivated to contribute in 'reasonable sourcing' and developing a more social responsible supply chain."

"This was an excellent course and something I could take to my job immediately and put to work. The information like Pivot tables and VLOOKUP are things that are helping me daily with sourcing and quoting decisions."
