Coursework in Licensing Studies


CLS is an in-depth study of the business of licensing – and the industry’s only training ground to become a Certified Licensing Executive (CLE).

This one year program is designed for professionals seeking a 360 degree view of licensing, led by industry frontrunners with expertise in various facets of the business, including branding, marketing, contract law, retail, and more.

The program begins each June during Licensing University™, the seminar program held in conjunction with Licensing Expo in Las Vegas. Coursework is completed by the following May. Those students who successfully complete the CLS program and pass their certification exam will receive their CLE credential.
