Are there prescribed courses, or do I choose whatever I want?
You create your own learning journey based on your budget, schedule, and professional development goals. A program representative can help you design your certificate. The programs you choose must total 15 days over 2 years and be taken at 3 different schools in 2 countries.

Who can help me with questions about a specific executive program?
Please contact the host school through the contact method indicated on their website.

How do I explain the benefits of the certificate program to my supervisor?
Download our Certificate Justification Letter.

Which programs qualify for the certificate?
Only programs listed on the schedule page qualify. (Schools offer additional programs that do not qualify for the certificate.) Only qualifying programs receive the 10% discount.

Can I take more than 15 days of programs?
Yes. You are also welcome to take programs at more than 3 schools and more than 2 countries.

What is the capstone project?
The capstone project is the culminating assignment in the Certificate program. It is an opportunity to apply your program learning to your current business environment through a project you design.  You will receive support and coaching from a professor at one of the participating business schools. After your project is complete, you will give a short presentation to a panel of experts from three Global Network business schools. Our program representative will help you select the right faculty to oversee your capstone project.

When will I receive my Certificate of Excellence in Global Business?
You will receive the certificate by mail after we verify that you have completed 15 days of qualifying executive programs and your capstone project within 2 years of your registration date.

I completed a qualifying executive program before I knew about this Certificate. Can I count it toward my 15 days?
Executives who have already taken one or more qualifying programs within the previous 12 months may count up to 5 days toward the 15 required days. The 10% discount will not be retroactively applied.

Are all the courses delivered in English?
Most, but not all of them.  

I still have questions, whom can I speak to?
