Agents completing their “MBA” (Monograms Booking Agent) by Jan. 14, 2014 will receive a $50 Visa gift card. The MBA self-study program has three modules and takes approximately two hours to complete. And, upon successful completion and their first 2014 booking, agents will enjoy numerous perks, including 50% off any Monograms’ holiday anywhere in the world.

“Monograms itineraries for independent travellers are pre-packaged to include accommodation, a half-day of city sightseeing, the support of a Local Host, and transportation between cities — so it feels like an FIT, but takes only a moment to book,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for the Globus family of brands, Monograms’ parent company. “With the MBA training program, agents receive a clear understanding of the components, the typical Monograms client and the brand’s talking points — including the 94% customer satisfaction rate.”

Monograms offers packages to Europe, Africa, Asia, the South Pacific and the Americas. MBA agents receive a diploma, a special logo to use on marketing materials, including business cards, free marketing materials and ACTA/CITC credits. (
