For outstanding service to the Northeast Ohio business community in the arena of global trade, Cleveland State University’s Nance College of Business was honored by the U.S. Department of Commerce with a Certificate of Appreciation for Achievement in Trade.
The award is the first ever given to a college or university in Northeast Ohio. It recognizes the ongoing, positive impact that the Nance College’s GlobalTarget Program has on helping local companies expand their products and services internationally. Ro Khanna, Deputy Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Commercial Service, presented the College with the award on April 6 at the Union Club. He also discussed the National Export Initiative recently announced by President Obama.
“GlobalTarget was cited as a model program for business schools that other schools should consider adopting,” said Robert Scherer, Dean of the College of Business. “We’re very proud that our program was recognized for its outstanding results in assisting businesses. We’re also proud of all of our participating firms who help make the program a success.”
The Certificate of Appreciation for Achievement in Trade recognizes foreign business partners, trade associations, U.S. government agencies, and other qualified recipients for supporting U.S. export development and creating opportunities for U.S businesses through trade.
GlobalTarget is a low-cost, interactive membership program for small- and medium-sized enterprises that are ready to expand their global presence and become successful global enterprises.
