The NASBITE CGBP Student Pathway Program is an independent study program for business students that is designed to be undertaken in parallel with existing studies. If you are enrolled in a program that is related to international business, you can check to see if your school is a NASBITE Educational Partner here. NASBITE Educational Partner schools that are also NASBITE members are eligible for internship opportunities.
As noted above, the NASBITE CGBP Student Pathway Program is an independent study program for business students that is designed to be undertaken in parallel with existing studies. The program can be started at any time, but most students begin the program at least 12-18 months prior to graduation. The program is designed to prepare students for employment in companies involved in international trade. In addition to their core studies, these students are learning about global business management, global marketing, supply chain management, trade finance, documentation, legal and regulatory compliance, intercultural awareness, technology, and trade-related resources. These students are located at more than 100 schools across the country, so there is a good chance we can connect you with students in your state/region that have these skills.
Some of the roles that would be typical for these students to assume are in the following business areas:
- Customer service and support
- Sales and marketing
- Transportation & logistics
- Supply chain management
- Export market planning & research
- Sales support and administration
- Promotional support & Website administration
- Trade-related administrative support
- Consulting and planning support
- Import-export administration
- Procurement and related bidding processes
- Trade finance and accounting
If your company/organization is interested in hiring an intern for any of these roles (or similar roles), please fill in the basic details in the form below. We will forward the opportunity to internship candidates in your state (also distributed nationwide) and candidates will send their resumes to you directly. At that stage, you are free to interview as many applicants as you like. Once you have identified a suitable candidate, you should make an offer to the candidate and make sure that the candidate accepts. If a suitable applicant is not found, you are under no further obligation.
