Certified Global Business Professional


The Global Business Resource Center is offering preparation courses for the NASBITE exam. See bottom of page for NASBITE exam dates and link to registration.

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 exam preparation 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 February 22 & 23, 2019 at the College of Charleston (8am-5pm). The cost of the program including a certificate of completion is $449 per person (CofC Partner organizations get a $150 discount: CWIT, SCWTC, Chamber, and Propeler Club members).
