Accreditation is a form of continuous quality control that ensures that programs or institutions meet established national or international standards. The international CIPS (Chartered Institute of Procurement Purchasing and Supply) accreditation governs the Purchasing and Supply Chain sectors, or in other words, ‘Operations Management’. The CIPS is a global community of more than 200,000 supply chain experts from various organizations and companies from different sectors.

What does CIPS accreditation mean to the business world?

This accreditation opens doors for graduates to some of the largest international companies. According to the Hays Salary Survey and Guide (2020), 64% of the large companies that responded to the survey said they require their future employees to be MCIPS (CIPS Members) or in a training program that allows them to become an MCIPS.
In addition, according to the same study, MCIPS professionals tend to earn higher wages, on average 17% more than their non-MCIPS counterparts.
