SIG University was founded on the ideals of elevating the sourcing profession to deliver strategic value to the corporation. SIG University is an inclusive, internationally recognized university with a mission of advancing the sourcing industry and transforming careers.
SIG University was created at the request of SIG members, who saw an educational training gap for today's workforce. SIG University uses an adult learning model to transfer the knowledge and skills to its students. The learning model is focused on the self-directed learner, who has the basic knowledge and skills of the material, is motivated, has good time management skills and has the ability to self-evaluate. The SIG U learning model is supported by a practitioner faculty who currently hold senior leadership positions in the sourcing space, allowing them to guide students to a better learning outcome.
