The Global Business Travel Association has announced the relaunch of its certificate in corporate travel execution (CCTE) program. The curriculum focuses on critical business travel topics such as accounting and finance, human resources, sales strategy, risk and legal issues and travel procurement.
 
The program, which is being offered in partnership with Cornell University Executive Education and the Cornell SC Johnson College of Business’s School of Hotel Administration, is recommended for those with at least three years’ experience in the business travel industry.
 
The CCTE curriculum is designed for corporate buyers and suppliers either overseeing a managed travel program or offering travel-related products and services. For the first time the course will be delivered virtually enabling more GBTA members from around the world to participate.
 
“The CCTE program is an industry recognized qualification for business travel professionals,” said Suzanne Neufang, CEO of GBTA. “We 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.”
 
The course will be taught by Cornell University professors who teach and research in business, travel and hospitality. On completion of the program, delegates receive the CCTE certificate from GBTA and Cornell University.
