Sprott-Shaw’s International Business Management Program Gains Accreditation

British Columbia’s Sprott-Shaw Degree College recently announced one of their programs has added some credentials.

Sprott-Shaw’s International Business Management (IBM) program has been accredited by Forum for International Trade Training (FITT).

“We are very pleased to extend this opportunity to Sprott-Shaw Degree College and [its] students,” said Caroline Tompkins, President of FITT.

This means Sprott-Shaw’s graduates can now transfer their credits to FITT and will have advanced standing towards the Certified International Trade Professional (CITP).

A CITP is a designation given to a qualified international trade practitioner. It is a credential that is recognized by employers, colleagues, and clients. To gain this designation, a student needs to:

  • Complete the educational requirement by achieving the FITT diploma
  • Complete or prove a minimum of one year, full-time, international trade work experience
  • Agree to the Standards of Ethical Conduct
  • Pay the annual dues and maintain the membership in good standing
  • Engage in ongoing professional development

Sprott Shaw’s International Trade and Business Management program trains students in importing and exporting all kinds of goods. They prepare and process import/export documents and other forms for clients, according to customs regulations, laws and procedures.
