The College of Charleston School of Business wants to team up with businesses in South Carolina that are interested in importing or exporting for a semester-long project.
The School of Business seeks five to seven motivated businesses for its Global Trade HelpDesk project, which will be led by students. During the project, students will conduct research to assess economic opportunities, regulatory requirements, social and cultural considerations, logistics and strategies that businesses can apply for conducting imports or exports with businesses in other countries.
“This project allows students to apply what they learn in the classroom about global commerce and support local companies that are interested in importing or exporting. It’s truly a win-win-win,” says David Desplaces, associate professor of management and entrepreneurship. He also leads the Global Trade HelpDesk project.
School of Business students will consult with the businesses that sign up for the project, helping each with its own specific trade needs. Businesses that are interested in the two-month project can contact Desplaces at firstname.lastname@example.org by Jan. 3.
