International Business Bootcamp

the Port of SeattleGW-CIBER’s virtual Summer 2020 International Business Bootcamp is a program designed for select GW students who are interested in expanding their knowledge of — and practical skills in — global business and trade. This multifaceted, co-curricular program involves a nine-week deep dive into learning about the mechanics of international trade through four main domain areas: Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply Chain Management, and Trade Finance. These domain areas are the core of the top international business professional certification, known as the Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP), which is offered by NASBITE International, the leading U.S. organization supporting the training and education in the field of global business. The bootcamp is a complement to traditional courses in international business, international trade, international economics and related areas, and teaches the practical aspects not widely covered in that coursework.
