Presently, the Institute offers three courses of study:
Go Global Entrepreneur Program
This program is designed for those who wish to have their own small business as an international trader or broker. This is more than just a course, this is a turn-key program that teaches the participant everything he or she needs to know to have their own successful import export trade business. A global entrepreneur can function in the capacity of a trade intermediary or broker, connecting buyers with sellers and earning a commission in the process. In this program, you will receive a well-rounded education in all aspects of operating a small business, importing, exporting, and working in the industry. You will also receive the Go Global! business module with the business tools you need as well as the exclusive 30-day Business Blast!™ planner to help you launch your business and to lay the ground work for your future success.
International Trade Certificate
The International Trade certificate course is for anyone who wants to learn about the import export industry – those that are new to the field, or those looking to broaden their knowledge base. This course covers four primary domains of practice:
- Global Business Management
- International Marketing
- Supply Chain & Logistics
- Trade Finance & Payment Terms
This certification is beneficial for those working in a related industry – an international banking representative who has clients that export and the banker is seeking information to better serve those clients, or for the freight forwarder who wishes to better assist his clients by understanding all facets of the trade negotiation and transaction. This course meets the NASBITE domain of practice standards and is also ideal for those who are seeking to earn the CGBP (Certified Global Business Professional) credential available through NASBITE.
Export Management Certificate
In this certificate course, the participant will master how to develop an Export Business plan and methods of global market entry. The participant will be able to assess export readiness, provide training and counseling information, create an export business plan, create a marketing plan, identify government resources, be aware of financing avenues, and much more. This is ideal for someone who is planning their own import export consulting business or for a manufacturer seeking to gain global market entry. If combined with another certificate course, this program will be offered at a 50% discount.
