A CGP representative has attended the Inspire Asean forum this week to promote programs to business people from the South East Asian region.

As an educational institution with a truly ‘global’ focus, the Center for Global Politics seeks to continuously expand its student base from diverse regions of the world. For this reason, Sandra Rector, the Senior Program Manager of the CGP’s Graduate School of Global Politics (GSGP) has this week travelled to Cambodia and taken part in the ‘Inspire Asean’ forum.

This forum, designed to facilitate discussions among regional business leaders, is one of the leading events of its type in South East Asia. The event itself was attended by over 100 people, the majority being local businesspeople from Cambodia, but also some attended from countries further abroad. At ‘Inspire Asean’ Sandra presented some of the CGP’s innovative new educational offerings to the business leaders present. Beyond general information about the center, Sandra’s presentation focused specifically on the CGP’s Certificates for Professionals.

Certificates for Professions (CfP), as the name suggests, are individual educational modules targeted towards busy working professionals who wish to expand their knowledge and skillset without giving up their day job. Covering a wide range of IR-related topics, the Center for Global Politics offers CfP modules in a number of topic issues such as migration, energy and finance. As well, modules are also offered teaching the complexity of international law and trade.

These CfP are particularly well-suited to the business audience at the Inspire Asean Forum as they enable professionals to conduction additional university-grade learning online, without having to attend a physical campus. What’s more, they are able to study in their own time, avoiding potential clashes with their day-to-day working lives.

The Inspire Asean forum was held earlier this week on the 20th of July in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. More information on it can be found here: http://www.inspire-asean.com/.
