Overview

A career in purchasing can be fun and rewarding if you have the right skill set to succeed on the job. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of available jobs in 2020 is 513,400. The median annual wage for buyers and purchasing agents was $63,470, and the median annual salary for purchasing managers was $127,150 in May 2021.

Buyers and purchasing agents buy products and services for organizations to use or to resell. But the job isn't as simple as just shopping. These professionals must consider many factors when purchasing such as budget, price, availability, demand, logistics, reliability of suppliers, and technical support. Purchasing managers oversee the work of buyers and purchasing agents. In addition, they must be able to accurately report on activity and forecast future events.

The Procurement & Purchasing Management course will introduce you to the basics of the supply chain process, management, purchasing, and contracting issues to provide you with the skills you need for a successful career. It is designed for anyone working in or interested in working in purchasing, logistics, or procurement.
