Over the years it expanded its academic offerings and in 2004 began to offer master’s programs. The University was acquired by Purdue University in March 2018 and renamed Purdue University Global.

A CBI has ethical values aligned with the IBBA standards of professionalism, and has the ability to objectively guide clients through the intricacies of the marketing and negotiation process of a business sale, resulting in successful transactions and satisfied clients.
