Riddle of the Exporter
March 4, 2016
On Friday, March 4, 2016, students from Manchester Community College and the University of Connecticut participated in “The Riddle of The Exporter” at the Viscogliosi Entrepreneurship Center at MCC on Main. This one-day workshop, sponsored by UConn CIBER , MCC, District Export Council (DEC), and the CT Small Business Development Center (CTSBDC) highlighted the importance of exporting to our economy and presented students with the key elements of exporting in an innovative and interactive eight-step process. This day of collaboration, networking, and experiential learning allowed students to engage in critical thinking and provided them with an opportunity to apply what they learned throughout the day. At the end of the workshop, student teams chose a product, developed an exporting plan, and presented it to a panel of judges during a friendly competition.
