Saint Vincent College Small Business Development Center Executive Director James Kunkel has received the National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE) Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) designation.

The credential confirms knowledge in international trade and assures that employees are able to practice global business at the professional level required in today’s competitive business environment.

The NASBITE CGBP certifies that a person is competent in four primary domains: global business management, global marketing, supply chain management and trade finance. Within each of the categories there are five main threads that cross all four areas including documentation, legal and regulatory compliance, intercultural awareness, technology and resources.

NASBITE contracted with Professional Examination Service (PES) in New York to help create the body of knowledge and the test protocol.

The credential was developed in cooperation with numerous federal and state government and corporate partners, as well as the Centers for International Business, Education and Research (CIBERs).

The CGBP is designed to meet the needs of individuals working in the international trade profession or studying for a career related to global commerce. Candidates from both small and large companies benefit as do students in two or four year degree programs. The credential is also suitable for individuals working in trade assistance organizations, trade promotion agencies and related educational institutions.
