About the UTPC
The University of Twente Purchasing Conference (UTPC) is an independent non-profit organization, run by a team of international, motivated and highly engaged students from the University of Twente. Under the heading “Come and meet the excellence”, the conference specifically explores the topics of purchasing and supply management. Participants of the UTPC have the chance of gaining state-of-the-art insights and the opportunity to meet with outstanding people in an international context, thereby extending their professional network.
We invite talented and highly motivated students as well as young professionals, corporates and academics from all around the world with an interest in purchasing and supply management to participate in the UTPC. Focal points are speeches given by CEOs, CPOs and partners of well-known corporations providing insights about a current trend in the purchasing field. Furthermore, students can show their talent while working on interesting business cases during workshops by the sponsoring organizations and attend our career fair to connect with representatives of high-class companies to establish contacts for their future career. Several interview opportunities with companies will be offered giving students the chance to discuss about possible job and internship opportunities. At the same time, young professionals, cooperates and academics have exclusive access to our network lounge. Altogether, the conference offers several networking breaks in order to provide all participants with the opportunity to become acquainted with each other, have inspiring talks and to make valuable contacts.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“The UTPC really gave me a different perspective on purchasing. Our university already offers real life examples within the program - but the conference just actually gets you in touch with the company representatives. You can link the theories to the real business world in the workshops which makes them even more fun."
“Fantastic team! It was a pleasure meeting you all! Congratulations for your fantastic conference!"
