Think of the CBM as an ‘MBA in the Cloud’. Hear from Michael in the USA, who recently passed CBM Part 1:
“The CBM Credential perfectly matches with my current professional career and development plan. Indeed it gives me the opportunity, not only, to refresh many theoretical concepts, learn new ones but above all really apply these to real day to day professional life. The learning is quite extensive and intensive – it is quite time consuming but the online courses and all options (podcast, outlines, tests) are very useful and user-friendly. As pursuing CBM really put in perspective the theoretical aspects with the practical ones, I would definitely recommend anyone who is keen to reinforce his knowledge and above all to learn more to go for the CBM.”

- General Management, Leadership, and Strategy
- Operations Management
- Marketing Management
