Global Business Programs has created these certificate programs in partnership with the Connecticut District Export Council to promote knowledge about exporting to students who may wish to have this additional skill for their résumés and potential internships. In a global economy, knowledge of exporting logistics and compliance is crucial for businesses of all sizes, as 95% of all consumers live outside the U.S. Achieving one or more of these certificates will help prepare students to assist an SME (Small to Medium size Enterprise) to begin or expand their exporting capabilities.
The program is open to any UConn student and runs until May 1st, 2021. To participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you have contacted Global Business Programs, you may begin any of the certificate programs listed below. “How to Earn a Certificate” provides the necessary steps. Please allow 2-3 weeks for Global Business Programs to send you your certificate of completion over email.
