Public procurement touches all economic sectors and constitutes between 15–30% of the GDP in most countries. Therefore, it is significant for enhancing market competitiveness and sustainable development. This Master’s programme is a response to the deficit in competent human resources and the need to keep up to date with the ever-increasing complexity of the legal framework, the globalization of markets, and the sophisticated contractual and tendering systems.
A number of sponsors have earmarked a limited amount of financial assistance (only on part of the tuition fees) to facilitate the participation of deserving candidates who are unable to meet the full tuition plus accommodation costs.
Unfortunately there are no full scholarships on offer to the Master in Public Procurement Management for Sustainable Development. You are therefore expected to finance your participation as far as possible. The admission criteria take into consideration your self-financing potential as well as your education and professional profile. In your application form, you are kindly requested to indicate the portion of the tuition fee and full board that you are able to finance.
A limited number of partial scholarships, not exceeding 20% of the tuition costs, are usually available for participants from developing countries and are allocated on a competitive-basis.
Scholarships do not cover international travel to and from Turin, accommodation, meals (lunch and dinner), visa and passport costs, and any personal expenses (telephone and fax, coffee and beverages, local transports to town, purchase of personal items, etc.).
