Global Business Strategy Certificate Program

Program Requirements

To earn the Certificate in Global Business Strategy, one must complete a minimum of 48 seminar hours. GBS seminars can be selected to suit your individual needs and may be taken in any order. Many participants complete the program within one year, but it may be possible to complete in five months; there is a two-year time period to complete the Certificate Program. See Program Highlights for additional details.

Program Fees

The Certificate in Global Business Strategy is an hours attended program. If seminars were taken separately, the total cost for the program could exceed $2,200 (depending upon the mix of 6 and 9 hour seminars), but the full Certificate Program is offered at a reduced price of $1,995.

The program fee is normally payable in advance of the program. However, with a policy of "try before you buy", a person may attend one seminar at the standard rate and pay the balance if they choose to continue with the Certificate Program.
