Upcoming Professional Development Programs


This program focuses on managing projects from the role as a project manager and leader. Students will learn how to prepare project schedules, develop project measures, how to approach project control, develop, lead and motivate project teams, manage project risk, and handle financial budgets.




The CGBP designation demonstrates an individual’s ability to conduct global business including Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply Chain Management, and Trade Finance. Students who complete our CGBP Training Program may sit for the NASBITE exam (that provides the CGBP designation) or use the knowledge in their current career.



Business skills can be applied across all industries and careers, regardless of an individual’s chosen field of employment. Non-business majors sometimes lack the skills necessary to transfer their education into a lucrative living. By providing insight into the principles and practices of operating a business, current students and recent graduates will build a foundation so they can successfully pursue a career in any industry. In addition, basic life skills for professional and personal development will be explored.
