About the Course


The Professional Diploma in Global Trade Management is a modular distance learning International Trade Business Management Programme.

This course gives attention to the knowledge, skills and insight needed to manage imports and exports either in a comprehensive trading company or in a department of a company that depends on sourcing or exporting to achieve its strategic objectives. Delivered in a professor-supervised, self-directed virtual-reality OJT context, this course relies on observation, explanation, application, mentoring, testing and contextualization to maximize professional competencies. The student learns from classic and contemporary readings, case studies, peers, and practicing managers.


This course is not for everyone. In some ways, this course will be more demanding and academically rigorous than a traditional classroom course. It has been carefully engineered by a team of qualified university professors and experienced business executives to meet the needs of busy working professionals who require maximum flexibility in a market-relevant, academically rigorous education. It places a significant burden on the student to manage the study schedule and to master concepts, principles, practices and tools. Self-discipline and time management skills are therefore essential to successfully complete this course.
