The certificates may serve as extra qualification, a springboard for further study or to enter a new job. They are an important professional credential for all those working in an increasingly complex global environment. Master level specialization at a smart pace is provided without having to complete a full degree.


With its core objective of presenting expert knowledge on a high academic level while being applicable to your professional situation, the program offers a variety of customized modules. Participants benefit from the CGP’s expertise in international education concepts and excellent tutors and obtain decisive practical-oriented qualification for their respective careers.

While the syllabus can be designed on demand in general or regarding a specific topic, workshops range from one day in-house training to two month-distance learning courses.

State-of-the-art teaching and learning methods, ranging from in-house seminars at partner’s location or at the CGP facilities in Berlin to customized distance learning courses with access to the CGP e-learning platform or a combination of distance learning courses and on-site seminars, are designed to be flexible and to meet individual needs.
