The Yum! Center for Global Franchise Excellence (Yum! CGFE) was established to unlock opportunity in the franchising industry and create a level playing field for underrepresented people of color and women. Education and research are the primary efforts of this Center. The franchise courses/certificates are delivered online at the graduate level, undergraduate level, or non-credit. The content was written with industry experts and has practical application immediately; the flexibility of online asynchronous learning, at any level, provides access to everyone. The Center will also launch creative research to understand the current gaps/needs in franchising, particularly with the underrepresented.

Franchise Education

The franchise educational content is available online asynchronously in three formats: graduate, undergraduate, or executive education (non-credit). All formats provide the same rich content that prepares someone to work in franchising in any capacity. All three versions provide CFE credit for those earning this IFA credential.
