Certified Global Business Professional


The next national NASBITE™ CGBP™ exam testing window runs from June 16-28, 2014.  Register online for a testing date and time at the NASBITE International website by May 4, 2014 for the June exam.

A U.S. Department of Education Title VIB grant enables the Global Business Resource Center in the School of Business to be the first test site in the Carolinas and to offer test preparation training courses.  The NASBITE CGBP, a vital addition to global trade education, is the first nationally-accepted, international trade credentialing program.

With support from the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. Department of Education, NASBITE International developed the Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) credentialing program. The CGBP credential sets the benchmark for global trade knowledge, and CGBP certification shows that an individual has the knowledge required to be a successful global commerce professional.

College of Charleston is one of six Nasbite CGBP accredited training programs available and has the largest number of CGBP-certified faculty members and trainers in a U.S. setting. The two-day session, offered through the Global Business Resource Center, covers the four core knowledge areas tested in the national exam:

All courses are taught by CGBP certified trainers. A full list of Certified Global Business Professionals at the College of Charleston is located on our CGBP-certified faculty page.

The next training session will be held on campus at College of Charleston, School of Business  in Charleston, SC on March 14th and  March 15th from 8 AM to 5pm. Information on schedule and registration can be found on our registration page.
