Take a look at what our students have to say.

Adam Moffitt
Business Development Manager | UPM Raflatac

At this point in my career, I was searching for an educational opportunity with the most comprehensive, data driven, and practical program and the CMPM offered that in droves. I was able to use my background to traverse other packaging disciplines and learn all new platforms I had interacted with but never had the chance to dive in. I recommend this program whether you’re just starting in packaging or even with several years under your belt.

Janis McIntosh
Naturipe Farms

I can honestly say that I applied elements of what I have learned from your program to this project, particularly in the area of building a timeline line and involving all stake holders in the process. We began shipping 3 weeks ago and the orders are increasing. Thanks again for all your help!

If you’re looking to increase your Packaging IQ. Here’s a good start! Despite having a degree in packaging and having worked in the industry for nearly 10 years, I still learned quite a bit. Very proud to share this achievement! Thank you Prof. Andrew Hurley, PhD, Julie Rice Suggs, PhD, and everyone at The Packaging School for putting together this program. It was a lot of fun and well designed! Cheers!

I joined because I love what I do as a Packaging Engineer. The Packaging School gives individuals the balance of utilizing his/her spare time while working full-time. I have recommended the program to colleagues and have boasted about it to upper management.

Vince Hayden

I enrolled to establish the basic fundamentals of packaging materials and processes to allow us to better serve our customers in these areas and speak intelligently to our vendors when requesting assistance.

I recently finished my first course, and I already see things differently inside my company and the position I would like to reach in my career journey. I seriously think that The Packaging School courses were the answer that I needed right now to make a further step into my personal education.

Lauren McDonald

I loved the fact that the CMPM program was an interactive online series that inspired my creativity and enabled my ability to use new tools to take back to Nissan North America, Inc. It allowed me to implement an effective and efficient packaging process to help not only me, but my colleagues in their everyday performance on the job.

Gavan Singh

This program met my expectations. In this program we are learning more in-depth compared to what we could learn in school and at a much more accelerated pace. For the price and going through the program, this program met my objective.

When you are passionate about something, your education should never end. The Certificate of Mastery in Packaging Management from Clemson University's Center for Corporate Learning is one of the most comprehensive, challenging and viable programs I have ever seen. I am thankful for the opportunity, I am thankful to work for UPM Raflatac that provided this challenge and I am eager to transfer my knowledge to a great industry I have the privilege of working in.

Although I am currently in the corrugated industry this course gave me a great refresher on developing packaging for our current customers and new prospects. Very detailed and insightful into the “why” of consumer buying decisions. I use the framework for the project development plan daily and have asked my team of Account Managers and Designers to focus on key elements of the plan, specifically the needs analysis and market research portions.

I would highly recommend the CMPM Program to anyone wanting to increase their knowledge and skill sets online. The CMPM Program does a great job of presenting information in multiple formats and making the information engaging, easy to understand, and applicable to the real world. Both the CMPM Program and the staff make going back to school online highly achievable and satisfying.

Jason McLawhorn

Even with over 20 years of experience in the packaging field, the CMPM program expanded my packaging knowledge and helped me understand and learn about packaging materials and concepts that I have not previously been exposed to. This has opened up a world of opportunity that I would not have been able to enjoy if I had not enrolled in this program.
