Export university July, 2013
On July 20th the NYDEC produced its first Export University 101 event employing the new syllabus pioneered by the National DEC and the U.S. Department of Commerce. The all-day seminar was held at the offices of the State of New York in Manhattan and was sponsored by the Commerce Department, Empire State Development, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, ITAC and FedEx. Approximately 35 students and instructors attended the seminar which taught many of the basics skills that are needed by small and mid-size companies in order to export U.S. goods and services profitably. Export University is a series of seminars that will be used by all the District Export Councils around the country as an important tool to push the President’s National Export Initiative (NEI).
