The focus of the programs offered by the International Business Institute at Austin Community College District (ACCD) in Austin, Texas is the certification of graduates as a Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP), a competency designation certified by the North American Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE).


This certification provides a benchmark for competency in global commerce. The CGBP designation demonstrates an individual’s ability to conduct global business including Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply chain Management, and Trade Finance. For candidates experienced in international trade, the certification confirms that knowledge. For candidates just beginning, it establishes a professional development goal to ensure a full understanding of the profession. For companies, it assures that employees are able to practice global business at the professional level required in today’s competitive environment.
