Why are we asking members to have a minimum of current MCIPS membership to graduate?

The CIPS MENA Graduation Ceremony is a celebration for members who have achieved MCIPS via a CIPS recognised programme of learning. Those with MCIPS are recognised globally as procurement and supply professionals. Being MCIPS signifies that you have attained a level of knowledge and understanding, based on the professional level of the CIPS Global Standard in Procurement and Supply, and that you have three years relevant work experience in a procurement and supply role. Being MCIPS provides assurance for your employer, peers and clients that you have continued to build on your academic achievements to stay relevant and up to date.
