On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, Manchester Community College’s Business Department, in partnership with the University of Connecticut Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER), hosted an Exporting Academy. The aim of the Exporting Academy is to increase the competitiveness of U.S. businesses by providing education, resources, and a framework for exporting. The workshop was facilitated by John Xu, GCBP, Lender Relations Specialist & International Trade Officer, Connecticut District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), and Denise Whitford, Business Advisor, Connecticut Small Business Development Center (SBDC). MCC is planning more workshops geared toward small and medium-sized businesses. Upon completion of the workshops, companies will have a developed and executable export plan.
