We won’t just help you get started; in fact, we’ll help you become an expert in international trade.
Would you like to…
Is that a resounding “Yes!” we hear?
The electronic BusinessSchool International, or eBSI for short, was established by international trade practitioners just like you.
We understand that for some people, achieving international trade accreditation and certification may be hindered by geographic or physical restriction or location. This is why we’ve developed the International Trade Specialist (ITS) Accreditation Program.
What is the ITS Program?
The ITS Accreditation Program is a distance e-learning course delivered worldwide from Ireland, a leading country in export. No matter where you are in the world, you can learn from internationally recognized experts, without ever having to leave your home.
Why should I take it?
We’re glad you asked. What does the ITS Program have to offer?
Expertise. You will learn everything you need to know about international trade, including contracts and Incoterms, document preparation, customs clearance, packing, warehousing, transport, trade finance, eBusiness, and much, much more.
Flexibility. You have the option to enroll in the entire ITS Program, or take only the modules that are specific to your needs.
Time. Got a hectic work schedule? Got kids to take care of? No problem. What’s great about this course is that you can study on your own schedule. You can take it on a part-time basis, and still work or look after the children full-time
Convenience. The lessons are delivered straight to your PC. Live sessions are held online. You can even attend in your pyjamas, if you’d like. And if you happen to miss a session, you can always view the transcript, so you don’t really miss out on anything.
Savings. Taking the ITS Program means that your commute expense amounts to zero. The course itself is also more affordable and takes less time to complete than a traditional degree program. And while there are other sources that offer training for little or no cost, they lack the depth to teach actual expertise.
Connections. Join in on discussions with fellow students, alumni, and consultants on our online campus. After you graduate, you will become part of an elite global alumni network that continues to share knowledge as well as trade and employment opportunities. You may also receive career placement assistance.
Recognition. Should you finish the entire ITS Program, you will be awarded the International Trade Specialist professional designation. How cool is that? This prestigious lifelong designation, which signifies your expertise to colleagues, clients, and employers, can be used on your correspondence, business cards, and CV.
“I looked at traditional learning but with my busy work schedule it didn't suit me. With the eBSI course, I could study when I wanted. Some days I didn't study much, then other times I would sit down and do a lot all together – and there was always guidance and encouragement from the eBSI team...”

“After considerable research, I finally opted for this programme. It really does cover the fundamental aspects of International Trade in an innovative, relevant and above all practical manner. Tutors are highly experienced with excellent communication skills, and the online campus and student interaction is a major benefit. Highly recommended and very worthwhile indeed!”

“I think the ITS Accreditation programme is a must for all international trade practitioners. The course content was very well developed, informative and innovative. The tutors were very friendly and supportive. In fact going through the ITS Accreditation was very beneficial to me both as a lawyer and a customs officer, and I do not hesitate to recommend it to all involved in the various aspects of international trade: custom officials, forwarding agents, bankers, etc.”
– Godwin Attoh, ITS Graduate 2004
Customs Officer, Ghana
The course is composed of three key advantages that deliver optimal results in the most efficient manner possible:
This unique combination sets the ITS Program apart from other training sources, which in turn gives you an edge over your competition.
Time, Money, and Quality
With the ITS Program, you can attain the highest degree of expertise on international trade while getting the most out of your time and money.
Unlike traditional education which can be very expensive and usually takes several years to finish, the ITS Program is much more affordable and can be completed in only 8 to 12 months. And that’s if you study on a part-time basis.
Free government resources and weekend seminars may require very little time to complete, but these sources lack the necessary focus and depth to impart real expertise.
“For me the best part of the programme was the interaction between the participants from the various professional disciplines of international trade, including exporters, importers, bankers, forwarders, marketeers, customs and other professionals. This blending of structured CD ROM content with online tutorials from highly experienced practitioners develops a network of trade contacts that lasts long after completion of the programme.”

“I much appreciate ITS Accreditation Programme. I learnt a lot of things which were new for me. The teaching method and the structure of presentation of the studied material are both very good and convenient for students. And also I appreciate very good attitude of the tutors towards students that really helps to get over the difficulties. I'm sure that the Certificate will help me in my future career.”

“What does a Vietnamese trade practitioner lack? Exposure to ICC experts, exchange with colleagues working in 'big name' organisations, and especially important - real case studies from all over the world. I got all these invaluable resources from eBSI at a cost which was great value for money. And amazingly enough, studying from home I was able to get an internationally recognized certificate!”
– Le Kim Dung, ITS Graduate 2003
