Since the SPSM Certification was launched in 2004, we’ve seen it rapidly rise in recognition and supplant other certifications as the “best” certification available in the eyes of purchasing professionals around the world. Yesterday, one more piece of evidence surfaced suggesting that the SPSM Certification is indeed the top procurement certification.

Supply & Demand Chain Executive Magazine released its “Supply & Demand Chain Executive 100” list of the 100 top service providers in the supply chain space. Next Level Purchasing made the list and was the only certification provider to do so.

So, on behalf of our students, I’d like to thank the staff of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. This recognition can only enhance the value that having the SPSM Certification brings to their purchasing careers.

And, on behalf of the Next Level Purchasing team, I’d like to thank the staff of Supply & Demand Chain Executive for the honor. We appreciate the recognition and congratulate you on the fine work you have done throughout the years.
