Investing in Information Technology Training to Support Import/Export Activities
Additional partners: The Center for International Business Education; law firm of Glassner & Handel; Florida Resource Center; Excel International Advisors, Inc.
This partnership's main objective was to encourage economic growth and leverage investment in technology to generate employment opportunities. The partners established highly successful import/export training programs at Universidad Regiomontana to meet the needs of firms conducting business in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) corridor.
The training focused on applying information technology to the needs of business. The partners then launched new courses at Universidad Regiomontana that reflected this approach.
The Orlando Sentinel sponsored public presentations in Florida on how international development programs such as this partnership help to increase the global awareness and international competency of Floridians. The success of the import/export training program prompted Mexican city and state government officials to approach the partners about developing a criminal justice training program.
