The UConn School of Business Office of Undergraduate Advising and Department of Management have 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 1, 2020. To participate, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, Associate Director of Global Business Programs. Once you have contacted her, you may begin any of the certificate programs listed below. “How to Earn a Certificate” provides the necessary steps.
Export Compliance I introduces specific topics in Export Compliance, including BIS, OFAC, Cybersecurity IT, etc. It explores special considerations for exporting to China, export controls at trade shows, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and more.
