Why Become a Certified Business
No matter what industry you compete in, you will have to make sound executive decisions; develop and execute business strategies; and, negotiate with business partners, vendors, customers and employees.
Excelling as a business development professional demands both analytical assessments and subjective reasoning. Assessing business opportunities and resolving business quandaries requires data driven analysis as well as the mental dexterity that results from a multi-dimensional approach to business development.
Developing highly granular financial models without considering the human element of execution is an exercise in futility. Implementing business plans without subjecting them to numerical scrutiny is a gamble, not a strategy.
As you pursue the CBDP designation, you will gain exposure to case studies of seminal business issues that emanate from a wealth of industries. You will also be presented with teachings from disciplines as diverse as game theory, evolutionary psychology, behavioral economics and anthropology. The CBDP courses are designed to provide you with practical and actionable ideas to manage the opportunities and challenges that lie before you.
The Business Development Academy is dedicated to impressing upon employers and clients, the unique value proposition that CBDPs bring to full-time positions as well as dedicated engagements.
