The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) has relaunched the GBTA certificate in corporate travel execution (CCTE) in partnership with Cornell University Executive Education and the Cornell SC Johnson College of Businessâ€™s School of Hotel Administration.
The CCTE curriculum is designed for corporate buyers and suppliers either overseeing a managed travel programme or offering travel-related products and services. The programme is recommended for those with at least three years of experience in the business travel industry and focuses on critical business travel topics including accounting and finance, human resources, sales strategy, risk and legal issues and travel procurement. The course will be taught by Cornell University professors who teach and research in business, travel and hospitality.
For the first time, the course will be delivered virtually enabling more GBTA members from around the world to participate. On completion of the program, delegates receive the CCTE certificate from GBTA and Cornell University.
â€śThe CCTE programme is an industry-recognised qualification for business travel professionals,â€ť said Suzanne Neufang, CEO, GBTA. â€śWe are delighted to be able to partner with Cornell University to offer a premium education opportunity to GBTA members aspiring to advance their knowledge in travel and business best practices.â€ť
Partial scholarships are available for GBTA and GBTA Chapter members.
