Certified Global Business Professional

The increasing globalization of business is exciting and filled with opportunity. With decreasing trade barriers, and increasing productivity and technology, there are international opportunities previously limited to only the largest and most experienced international companies. But these opportunities are also challenging. Individuals working in global business must be knowledgeable in a wide range of competencies. From knowing how to avoid financial loss in even a simple international transaction to selecting the most appropriate foreign markets – ours is a highly varied and detailed profession. It is also a profession in which individuals are often isolated in only one or two aspects of international trade, with inadequate knowledge of other equally important areas. Companies rely on the expertise of individuals handling their international activities and are seeking proof of competency. 

The NASBITE CGBP provides a benchmark for competency in global commerce. The CGBP designation demonstrates an individual’s ability to conduct global business including Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply Chain Management, and Trade Finance. For candidates experienced in international trade, the certification confirms that knowledge. For candidates just beginning, it establishes a professional development goal to ensure a full understanding of the profession. For companies, it assures that employees are able to practice global business at the professional level required in today’s competitive environment.

NASBITE International 
(NASBITE.ORG) NASBITE International is a non-profit organization of educators, trainers, and practitioners in the field of international trade.  NASBITE began the task of creating a national credential in 2001 with the support of many partners.  NASBITE facilitates and coordinates the certification process, but does not provide training for the certification exam. Instead, academic, private, non-profit, and NGOs involved in international trade education and training will provide these services.
