Advanced Training Programme on International Trade and Investment (ITAI)

Programme Aim
The purpose of this programme is to provide a combination of critical and analytical skills in relevant subjects which are underpinned by theoretical and practical knowledge of the key issues in international trade, cross-border direct investment and economic development. Although there are many short training courses in related fields these tend to be expensive; and other the existing courses tend to be tailored towards recent graduates. The strongest theme of this executive level programme will be the critical assessment and evaluation of trade and investment practices, and their inputs and outputs in relation to their impact on economic development.



The programme contains seven core modules and the Project module. Participants normally study two 20 credit modules per semester. 

  • Business Planning and Financing International Trade and Investment
  • Inter-Cultural Communication
  • Trade, Investment & Economic Development
  • Business Negotiations
  • Entrepreneurs & SME`s in International Trade and Investment
  • International Trade Rules & Agreements
  • Research Methods
