One of the world’s leading academic institutions, the University of Liverpool, is once again joining forces with the International Cotton Association (ICA), to deliver its unique, Professional Certificate in Commodity Management online course next year.

Enrolment is now open and the 2019 course will commence on 7 January.

We are delighted to be running this course again”, says Bill Kingdon, ICA Managing Director. “This bespoke qualification aims to provide delegates with a broad and practical introduction to the key learnings that are needed in today’s commodity management through six modules. Through formally recognising students’ hard work with a professional qualification from a leading university, we believe the course will help develop their professional careers in many ways.

Dr. Susan Minten, Senior Lecturer at the University of Liverpool Management School, who will deliver one of the course modules, adds: “The University of Liverpool has created a strong partnership with the ICA in the development and delivery of the Certificate in Professional Studies: Commodities Management. The Professional Certificate is a flexible, bespoke online course for early career professionals within the cotton industry. Working with the first cohort of students has been extremely rewarding in terms of supporting them in developing their knowledge and skills to enhance their personal effectiveness within the cotton industry, many of them have produced outstanding work that will be relevant to their future career”.

Delegates will enroll for the full course (all six modules) in 2019.
