HAMMOND William Joubert of Southeastern Louisiana University has been certified as a Global
Business Professional, one of only five people in the state to pass the national exam
taken in December.
Joubert is director of the Southeast Louisiana Business Center and the university’s Louisiana Small Business Development Center. The center also houses a business incubator and several area economic development agencies.
The test, administered by NABSITE International (formerly the North American Small Business International Trade Educators), was formed to raise the level of practice in the field of international trade, provide professional development goals, and showcase competency through a rigorous certification process. Only 843 individuals in the United States and 1,052 people worldwide passed the most recent certification exam.
“The Business Center is doing an increasing amount of work and consulting with clients who have international interests,” said Joubert. “This certification is an excellent component of the extensive expertise that we are able to offer our clients in southeast Louisiana.”
Joubert holds an MBA degree from Southeastern and received his bachelor’s degree in economics and international trade and finance from LSU.
