COURSES IN EXPORT / IMPORT MANAGEMENT

Course Outline Companies, striving to find new customers, protect their sales against a declining home market and foreign competition, and maintain production and manufacturing levels acknowledge the need to export and compete internationally. Staff who are knowledgeable and qualified in this area of business are essential to companies who intend to or are already trading in the world market. The Certificate course in Export/Import Procedures provides the knowledge and skills necessary for a first significant post while the Diploma course builds on the knowledge of export/import procedures acquired at the Certificate level and explores managerial and policy making aspects associated with trading internationally. On completion of both courses students are able to formulate procedures for international trade and ultimately manage this function on behalf of a company. The inclusion of three optional subjects also enables students in the final part of the Diploma course to select a subject for study which they consider important in their particular area of business or future career. The courses in Export/Import Management of the London Centre of Management are exclusive, promoted worldwide and are provided by a BAC accredited college. The British Council Offices throughout the world, only recommend British, State or BAC accredited colleges to students who wish to follow a further or higher education course in Britain. These colleges advertise to and attract students from all over the world, therefore, their courses are designed to meet international needs and standards.
