UCI Division of Continuing Education’s Contract Management Certificate Program focuses on core competencies recognized by the National Contract Management Association. Coursework addresses the most up-to-date information available in the procurement and contracting fields – whether commercial, government or international. Students will develop a solid understanding of the contracting process and key elements of procurement and acquisition, including contract formation, negotiation, financial analysis and risk management. Students will also explore new business areas such as global outsourcing, international contracting, doing business with the federal government and building strategic alliances.
“Managing over 400 vendors for a $9B financial institution, vendor contracts are a big part of my responsibilities. I gained immediate knowledge that I could use in my job and found several textbooks I have been able to utilize as reference tools at work. The classes were a great opportunity to network with instructors and other contract professionals.”
