Business Travel News Launches BTN Academy
A Comprehensive, Interactive Online Education Platform for Business Travel Professionals


Rutherford, NJ - Business Travel News (BTN), the leading global source of business travel and meeting information, news, data, analysis and research, is pleased to introduce the BTN Academy. This state-of-the-art online education platform is designed to empower professionals in the travel management industry.

“Business Travel News is excited to offer a comprehensive, online and self-guided travel management learning platform for anyone who touches business travel,” said Editorial Director Elizabeth West. “Our industry is in a moment in which education is a critical component for everyone—whether they are starting their very first business travel management position or learning more about distribution nuances that are impacting even the most mature programs. Having a self-determined learning journey where you pick the components relevant to you is a new and different approach.”

BTN Academy will offer a comprehensive catalog of courses covering subjects from how to get started with a travel program structure and policy to working with supplier categories and how to implement meetings management and travel risk management. The Academy's courses feature learning modules, interactive quizzes, best practice guides and will be enhanced with industry glossaries and additional video content. This approach ensures an engaging learning experience that facilitates knowledge retention and practical application.

Learners have the flexibility to choose the courses most relevant to their needs and interests. A seven-minute orientation video serves as the starting point, after which learners have the freedom to customize their learning experience according to their preferences and goals. Successful completion of courses will be rewarded with certifications, validating the learners' knowledge and expertise.

“BTN is committed to advancing the travel management industry by providing accessible and high-quality education,” said Louis Magliaro, Executive Vice President and Group Publisher for The BTN Group. “BTN Academy is that resource, and we hope everyone will benefit from this personalized learning platform delivering knowledge that is indispensable for managing travel or optimizing existing programs.”
