Global Business Professional Certificate (CGBP Exam Prep)
Global Business Professional Certificate (CGBP Exam Prep) - Professional Development Certificate
This professional development certificate provides an overview of essential skills for conducting international business. It covers practical applications in many areas of management, supply chain management, trade finance, and marketing. Within each of these four areas, five "threads" or topics are covered: Documentation; Legal and Regulatory Compliance; Intercultural Awareness; Technology; and Resources. Examples of some topics include developing a global business plan, using technology to support global trade, the offshore procurement process, political and economic risks, and developing a marketing plan and budget.
This suite of courses can also be used for preparation to write the North American Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE) Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) exam. Each of the four courses contains a 25-question practice exam as well as tips and documentation to help you prepare for the exam. The CGBP designation certifies that a candidate is competent in the four primary domains: Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply Chain Management, and Trade Finance; and capable of working with the level of expertise and professionalism that is required in today's competitive environment. For more information about the CGBP designation, or to book an exam, visit the Nasbite International website.
