International School of Business has a New Educational Partner

April 10, 2019

Finlandia University’s International School of Business is now a Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP) Educational Partner School. CGBP is overseen by the National Association of Small Business International Trade Educators (NASBITE), a leading authority and industry standard for global business, education, trade credentialing, training and practice.

NASBITE wanted to develop a professional credential that would raise the level of practice in the field, provide professional development goals and showcase competency. The CGBP Student Pathway Program did just that and now students at Finlandia can become members.

“This is an excellent opportunity for our students,” said Kevin Manninen, Dean of the International School of Business. “With lowered trade barriers and new communication technologies easily and affordably available, more companies are or should be engaging in international trade. Those that do will need the expertise that our program provides.”

As NASBITE educational partner school, Finlandia students majoring or minoring in International Business have the opportunity to receive a number of great benefits by becoming a CGBP member. A full list of the Student Pathway membership benefits can be found here.

“The CGBP Student Pathway Program allows students to gain valuable knowledge and expertise while studying towards their international business degree or minor. This low-intensity approach complements their BBA studies extremely well,” said Manninen.

The International Business concentration at Finlandia is already tailored towards students who may want to work towards a CGBP certification and serves as a great resume builder to really make them stand out from the crowd.

Students with questions about CGBP Student Pathways can contact Kevin Manninen at kevin.manninen@finlandia.edu and be sure to check out Finlandia’s newly redesigned International Business program webpage at finlandia.edu/internationalbusiness.
