The Purchasing and Procurement function is the entry portal for the flow of materials and services in all companies, but also the guarantor of the exchange of incoming and outgoing information with the supplier market. Today it has become a strategic function due to its decisive contribution to profitability, competitiveness and value creation in a large number of companies, be they industrial, distribution or service companies. In order to create a competitive advantage and to bring value to its customers, the company needs more than ever innovative and efficient management methods.

At the end of the training course, the trainee/student should be able to carry out the following missions :
The Executive Manager of Purchasing and Procurement Strategies is a value-added player in large companies, central purchasing agencies, SMEs and Pure Players.
He/she is no longer perceived as a support and executive function. In line with the company’s strategy and policy, the Executive Purchasing and Procurement Strategy Manager manages the entire purchasing and procurement function and, if necessary, manages a team of buyers. The business also includes the coordination of transport flows and product stocks upstream of the production chain or the company’s distribution points. It thus implies a good knowledge of intermediary service providers, including subcontractors, transporters and forwarding agents.
Today and up to 2030, two trends are likely to considerably modify the business: the global digitalisation of the company and the development of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
Digitisation will lead to the disappearance of activities with low added value that can be automated: the drafting of calls for tenders, the automation of orders for example, the generalisation of the implementation of e-procurement etc…. The Executive Managers of the Purchasing and Procurement strategies will further develop their activities towards added value activities: an efficient and constant technological watch, a fair relationship with the upstream market, the identification of innovative products for their company, a better quality and relevance of market studies, a continuous improvement of the purchasing/procurement processes, etc…
This trade will continue to include an international dimension. The practice of English and the multicultural approach will be complemented by the systematic consideration of the global cost, which refers to all the elements related to Social Responsibility.


Information and Admission Sessions take place throughout the year. You must register for a date to take the admission tests. An overall presentation of ECEMA is given by the director of the establishment or by the Enterprise Department. This is followed by a one-hour test: 30 minutes of general knowledge quizzes including questions in English and 30 minutes of specialist quizzes. Finally, the individual motivation interviews take place on the same day. Admission results are announced within 48 hours. Foreign candidates must go directly to the following address to pass the admission session: [email protected].


Like all ECEMA courses, the Ms Purchasing and Supply is available on a part-time course. The Companies division follows each part-time student, from the time he or she looks for a part-time job until the end of his or her contract. The latter benefit from advice and coaching: throughout the year, professional monitoring is carried out by the training advisors in order to follow the development and progress of each individual’s part-time training and education.


International mobility is one of the values that ECEMA wishes to develop from year to year. As a member of the Collège de Paris, ECEMA benefits from an immense international network of partners. Part-time students have the opportunity during their training to study abroad.

Every year, the part-time students also have the opportunity to go on Learning Expeditions, complete organised stays, guaranteeing total immersion in the professional world of each destination. Each country has its own specificities: management, cultural approach, structure, field of expertise etc. Visits to companies and universities, discovery of incubators, meetings with professionals or cultural visits during each stay, everything is done to create a unique experience.
