Welcome to the University of Rome Tor Vergata

Dear Student,

It is with pride and enthusiasm that we want to present the fourth edition of the International Master in Public Procurement Management (IMPPM), founded on the willingness and commitment of both the Procurement Department of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

IMPPM has already delivered three successful generations of Master level procurement proficiency, encompassing almost 100 participants from 22 countries and 67 diverse entities and institutions. Many organisations have by now recognised the advantage in a globalised setting of having their own specialists trained to resolve procurement issues and to implement projects more efficiently and effectively, thus avoiding the high cost of engaging consultants to perform such duties.
Tor Vergata has found in EBRD the right institutional partner to achieve the ambitious goal of exporting our professional and training capacity throughout the globe. We have always believed that public procurement issues are common worldwide but need specific solutions for each context. We have therefore tailored a program meant to confront the dilemmas and challenges that may occur during purchasing activities and the planning process, a programme which provides a hands-on approach and utilises instruments such as case studies combined with the right blend of theory and practice.

Thanks to the crucial support of the Central European Initiative and the Italian Ministry of Economy and Finance, we continue to successfully pursue the principal aim of the Master’s Degree: to effectively train officials operating in the field of procurement and students eager to apply for a position in this field of work.
At Tor Vergata applicants will find an engaging academic environment combined with an international dimension, in the context of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The intensity of the program and the live-in experience on the university campus will allow students to work as a team, learn from each other’s background and engage in lively professional debates around public procurement, adding an essential human touch to the quality of the overall period of studies.

Tor Vergata University, recognised worldwide as a Centre of Excellence for Procurement, is proud to offer its interdisciplinary procurement team of experts ranging from various fields (ethics, law, negotiation, economics, quality management, audit, IT, strategy, planning, sustainability) to the prospective participants that wish to add value to their working experience while improving their skills and knowledge.
