Our Mission

The Global Business Development Association (GBDA) is a nonprofit trade association representing an international coalition of corporations and business development leaders advancing the art, science, and ethics of the business development profession.

Our mission is simple.  We help our members grow.

We provide three core services:

1. Individual Certifications: Help people enter the business development profession and enable existing business developers to grow their corporations, customers, and community.

2. Corporate Certifications:  Help our corporate members grow their customers and community.

3. Community:  Business development is a team sport.  We welcome anyone to join our free community to enjoy valuable benefits including news, events, and discounts.
