Centrul de studii si examinare „Universitatea Nationala de Aparare „Carol I” al renumitei institutii Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) din Marea Britanie a fost infiintat la Bucuresti, in 2012, la initiativa aceleasi universitati, in parteneriat cu Integrate Investment si Charles Kendall Group. Infiintat in 1932, CIPS reprezinta cea mai prestigioasa institutie dedicata formarii profesionale in materie de achizitii, formand o retea de 64 de centre de studiu, raspandite in 150 de tari din intreaga lume, dand astfel nastere la o comunitate de aproximativ 200.000 de profesionisti.
In iulie 2017 Centrul de Studii CIPS dobandeste statutul de Approved Study Centre, o recunoastere a efortului depus dar si deschiderea caii catre statutul de Centre of Merit si apoi catre cel de Centre of Excellence.
O revizuire a programei CIPS este in curs iar noua programa si examenele aferente vor intra in vigoare in 2019.
Achizitiile reprezinta punctul central al comertului, iar pentru a avea succes, o afacere are nevoie de profesionisti calificati in acest domeniu. Acesta este si unul din rolurile Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) – de a forma profesionisti in domeniul achizitiilor.
CIPS sustine dezvoltarea profesionala in materie de achizitii, oferind 5 niveluri de calificare, iar odata absolvit cu succes fiecare nivel, studentii vor obtine o diploma sau certificat, dupa caz, recunoscute pe plan international reprezentand astfel biletul pentru cursa spre dezvoltarea carierei in achizitii.

Cele mai recente Testimoniale
At the beginning of 2017 I had the inspiration to contact Integrate Investment CIPS Study Centre, an Approved Study Centre of the prestigious Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply, in order to understand the opportunity of attending the „Diploma in Procurement and Supply” guided learning program. I’ve known for some time that this program is recognized to be a top reference and a benchmark by the international procurement community in terms of knowledge and excellence and once you will be able to pass all five exams, you could truly start to consider yourself a procurement professional. If in the initial phase I was a overwhelmed by the amount of information required to be studied, with a consistent guidance, intelligent and positive approach from my tutor (Ms. Violeta Simionescu), I was pleased to find that all topics were quite approachable and fairly easy to understand, especially if you already have some previous experience in procurement area. In order to be able to pass the tests, you must really commit yourself to this training program which requires time, focus, consistency, dedication and careful preparation, so you can fully and thoroughly understand the topics presented and deliver a solid examination paper. There are no shortcuts about it! In conclusion, it was one of the most pleasing, fruitful and rewarding learning experience I’ve encountered and I would recommend it without hesitation to all of you which are truly dedicated to a procurement career path.
Excellent program, the material was rich in useful and accessible content. Initially I thought it was too difficult for me, since I wasn’t even a procurement professional, but I made it to obtain my Advanced Certificate in one and a half year. It was the most interesting learning journey and I look forward to apply also all the knowledge I aquired.
It was an outstanding experience, and I want to express my appreciation to Integrate Investment for their great work to facilitate the learning process by clarifying the key concepts, presenting the „big picture” and positioning each concept at the right place. CIPS learning program is very challenging and demanding but it gives a great satisfaction after completion and set the students on a professional way with real chances for future growth. Integrate Investment CIPS Study Centre demonstrated the ability and expertise to create the professional environment for such qualification. Looking forward to for the next CIPS Level.
