Certificate of Excellence in Global Business

Accelerate your career with the only global business certificate that gives you access to elite business schools around the world.

We built the Certificate of Excellence in Global Business to help modern professionals navigate today’s tumultuous, global business world. You design a personalized learning path of 15 program days best suited to your professional growth. The programs you choose must total 15 days over 2 years and be taken at at least 3 schools and 2 countries. The Certificate allows you to explore critical topics across categories and locations – taught by academic leaders at top universities.

The culminating project in the Certificate program is a capstone project for which you apply your program learning to your current business environment through a project you design and present.
