globalEDGE Session at America's SBDC Annual Conference
Tuesday, September 9 - 12, 2014
The primary goal of this session is to introduce participants to globalEDGE.msu.edu, the #1 "international business resources" site on the Internet (Google, 11/19/13). Participants will learn about the site and how it can help SBDCs, their staff, and their clients to better understand issues in international trade and business.
After attending this session, participants should be knowledgeable about globalEDGE as an international business and trade resource and able to use the site for their own research, as well as direct clients to relevant portions of, and resource listings on, globalEDGE (according to client needs). Examples of such information might include trade contacts in each state, Diagnostic Tools, exporting tutorials, the online module series (especially the Basic Guide to Exporting modules), and trade statistics and cultural information on over 200 countries.
