Central-North Florida District Export Council

(ORLANDO, Fla.) — NEWS: The Central-North Florida District Export Council recently opened enrollment in its new Global Business Management Certificate program for companies looking to grow their presence in the global marketplace and for individuals wanting to prepare for the NASBITE (National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators) Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) designation, often a requested qualification in the U.S.

The District Export Council’s (DEC) Global Business Management Certificate curriculum follows and contains the domains and topics of the NASBITE’s CBGP designation including global business and exporting; global marketing; global supply chain management; and global trade finance. There are two tracks available to participants: intermediate and advanced. Both tracks can be completed in a year.

The format of the certificate program is on-line webinars and a capstone in-person day of training. All successful participants receive a completion certificate from the University of Central Florida and the Central-North Florida District Export Council.

Dr. Oz Erdem, chair of both the Central-North Florida District Export Council and the National Association of District Export Councils led the development of the Certificate’s curriculum to fill the need for a program of instruction to immerse companies and individuals in the key facets of exporting. “We designed the curriculum to highlight real-world examples, case studies, practical knowledge, and the wealth of resources. The curriculum directly supports preparation for the CGBP designation.”

Many of the DEC’s Global Business Management Certificate program instructors are U.S. Department of Commerce appointees to the Central-North Florida District Export Council.

The deadline for enrollment in the Intermediate track is April 17, 2020. Class dates and times, enrollment information, and payment details are at
