The North American Small Business International Trade Educators Association (NASBITE) Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) Credential provides a benchmark for competency in global commerce. The CGBP designation demonstrates your ability to conduct global business. If you're experienced in international trade, the certification provides recognition of your knowledge. If you're just beginning a career in international business, the certification establishes your commitment to professional development.
The Certified Global Professional Online course was created by academics, industry practitioners, and professionals who assisted in the development of the credential and is backed by their extensive backgrounds related to the material. The Certified Global Business Professional course prepares you for the credential exam by educating you in four areas: global management, global marketing, supply chain management, and trade finance.

Can I register for a course if I am an international student?
Yes, ed2go courses are completely online. However, keep in mind that not all certifying bodies or industry-specific certifications are recognized internationally. Please review your country's regulations prior to enrolling in courses that prepare for certification.
What trade skills are certified and at what depth?
The NASBITE CGBP certifies that a candidate is competent in four primary areas:
Within each area are the following five "threads," which are topics that cross all four areas:
Within each of these areas and threads, there are tasks and knowledge statements tested through the CGBP exam.
The NASBITE CGBP doesn't certify that a candidate is an expert in each of the four domains. It certifies that a candidate is proficient in the tasks and knowledge generally associated with a practitioner who's worked in global trade for two years.
The Certified Global Business Professional Online Training course prepares you for the credential exam by educating you in four areas: global management, global marketing, supply chain management, and trade finance.

What are the benefits of the CGBP certification?
Candidates who receive the NASBITE CGBP designation may use the credential logo and word mark on resumes and business cards, which will identify them to employers and the public as individuals proficient in global commerce. For companies, the certification establishes a professional development goal for current and future employees. The credential also helps individuals diversify their skills in global commerce and assures they understand a broad range of topics rather than just the specific field they have experienced within international trade.
What's required to achieve certification?
To receive the NASBITE CGBP designation, a candidate must pass the CGBP exam and have completed either two years of college-level study or have worked in global commerce for two years.
What is the CGBP exam and when is it offered? What is the cost?
The CGBP exam is a multiple-choice exam covering the four areas and five threads. The exam is offered in major U.S. cities at various times during the year. Locations and dates are posted on www.nasbite.org under Exam Locations.
The course itself was clear and provided a lot of information. It met my expectations. Thanks you!- M.V., University of Georgia
