Overview and Course Topics
The Certificate in Corporate Travel Execution, in collaboration with Cornell University’s Executive Education Division, is a tailored education program designed for both corporate buyers overseeing managed travel programs and travel product and service suppliers. This program offers a virtual classroom experience focused on key business travel topics such as accounting, finance, human resources, sales strategy, risk and legal issues, and travel procurement. The course will be instructed by expert Cornell University professors specializing in business, travel, and hospitality.
This program is ideal for travel professionals seeking to advance their knowledge in travel and business best practices. While holding a Global Travel Professional® (GTP) certification is recommended, it is not required. Upon completion of the course, participants will receive a Certificate from Cornell University Executive Education and GBTA Academy, as well as 16 GTP® Recertification credits.
This virtual classroom course will be completely online, and participants will be required to commit to two 2-hour sessions per month from September through December. In the event that a participant is unable to attend a “live” class, recordings will be available upon request/approval. At the end of the course, each professor will present a single essay question to enable participants to demonstrate their knowledge gained.
THE NEXT SESSION WILL BE FALL 2024 – REGISTRATION WILL OPEN EARLY 2024
Please note that the course dates are subject to change.
