Certified International Professional Manager (C.I.P.M. Level 2)

Certified International Professional Manager (C.I.P.M. Level 2)
Globalization represents a revolutionary integration of capital, technology and information across national boarders in a way that is creating a single global market and, to some degree, a global village. While globalization is of greatest concern to businesses and agencies working transnationally, globalization trends affect all businesses whether or not they are truly global. The International Manager certifications are designed for the sophisticated manager with extensive work experience seeking advanced instruction in issues related to globalization. The program provides the specialized knowledge and skills necessary to manage successfully in a rapidly changing, multicultural and multinational environment.
The certification program has three major objectives. They are:
1. To provide sound knowledge of globalization concepts from the perspective of all business management disciplines 
2. To provide skills related to working effectively in the multicultural, multinational, business world that globalization is creating. 
3. To provide an opportunity for making a contribution to the globalization knowledge base through completion of the required doctoral project. 
Candidates in this certification program are expected to be highly motivated, disciplined, self-starters. 
The unique delivery modality allows this program to be offered on-site at any company or governmental agency that wishes to bring the program directly to its employees.  In addition, the program can be given online, using Blackboard or another online learning courseware. These delivery modes can increase student and company convenience by reducing travel time, missed work hours and incidental costs that normally accrue to students. 
This Certification Program is a core certification program of the American Certification Institute.  This program offers the designation of C.I.P.M. (Certified International Professional Manager) to candidates who demonstrate their understanding of the fundamentals of the profession through the successful completion of rigorous professional certification examinations based upon the INTERNATIONAL PROFESSIONAL MANAGEMENT BODY OF KNOWLEDGE (IPMBOK). 

Modules for Certification

Multicultural team building, overcoming cultural bias and other challenges of cross-cultural management are also examined.
Module 3 Leadership in a Global Context 
Leadership has been traditionally been defined as establishing a future vision and influencing others to achieve that vision. This module tests this view against the requirements of international and cross-cultural business. Alternative models of leadership are proposed and discussed. The module also provides a “hands-on” interpersonal experience to give each student the opportunity to assess and be assessed in situations that call for leadership.

Module 6 Business Strategy from a Global Perspective
