This intense three-day training session focuses on the major facets of international trade for MBA students at UK. With Valvoline as the Corporate Collaborator for this year’s program, several case studies were presented that challenged students to come up with innovative solutions to global business issues.
The program, led by Chief Trade Officer Darren Srebnick and Director of Training Ian Mooers, with WTC-KY, taught students about trade policy, market entry strategies, import/export transactions, and business culture. In addition, students were introduced to careers in international business.
Gatton MBA Director Harvie Wilkinson, who also serves as director of the executive education center in the college, said, “The WTC Kentucky has been a long time, trusted partner of our MBA Program. The Certificate in Global Commerce and Strategy program, that they manage and deliver for us, provides our MBA candidates with great exposure and a solid foundation in global trade and commerce.”
The World Trade Center and UK expressed appreciation to speakers from the local and regional business community for their active involvement in the program.
“The World Trade Center is honored that UK has partnered with us on this program for the last seven years. This is a unique opportunity for MBA students to learn from practitioners with extensive international business experience,” said Chief Trade Officer Darren Srebnick.
