ARE YOU READY FOR THE WORLD?
Whether you are in banking or baking; in public or private industry, today’s marketplace has no borders. As a result, consumers and businesses alike are in search of the best product or service that meets their appeal. This process requires conquering language, cultural, monetary exchange, political, and transportation barriers that could be all too challenging to overcome without the right knowledge. The benefits of acquiring the knowledge needed could be exponential in increasing your employability and ultimately the profit margins of any organization in business today. The business of yesterday could thrive by serving a more local community; the business of tomorrow comes prepared to serve the world. Are you ready?
PREPARE TO COMPETE GLOBALLY
More and more foreign-owned firms are calling Mecklenburg County home. Today, the number of international businesses operating in the county rose to 750 firms, and 14% percent of the population here is foreign born. Even Charlotte’s schools represent over 150 countries and over 120 spoken languages.
As the county’s business landscape evolves to incorporate more “international flavor,” so too must local business leaders to remain successful. Today’s professionals and college graduates are competing with a global workforce comprised of individuals with the business acumen and foreign language skills to succeed on any professional level and in any working environment.
In response, Central Piedmont Community College’s (CPCC) International Business Program has designed a two-year degree program that prepares students for positions in international business. In addition, we also provide classes for business professionals who just need to enhance their current skills and knowledge to be better armed for the competitive global market.
COMING THIS FALL 2011 – Introduction to Logistics
This class will now be a requirement for the International Business Diploma program.
"Logistics is key to the supply chain for goods and services moving around the globe. This course will give the participant an understanding of the degree of complexity and tools needed for efficient and effective movement of goods and services internationally."
Steven Kessler - CPCC
