Acsenda celebrates the success of IBM students

Acsenda celebrates the success of IBM students. Congratulations to our recent International Business Management program graduates, Marinel, Joseph, Davey, and Queen Anne, on earning their Diploma in International Trade from the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT).

Earning this diploma proves that students have a solid foundation of knowledge in various aspects of international trade and satisfies the educational requirement of the professional certification, the CITP®|FIBP® global certification. Numerous studies have shown that those with professional certifications, diplomas, and designations earn higher salaries and more promotions.

‘’Going back to school is never an easy decision for an employed professional, and it is not something one should do half-heartedly. It was not an easy decision for me either. It took perseverance, dedication, and hard work.

I am grateful to my classmates who turned into lifelong friends, and to my family for their understanding and support. Also, my professors at Acsenda School of Management for their mentorship, help and encouragement. My advice to my fellow IBM graduates is never to stop learning. Stay committed to your goal and believe in yourself.’’
