Global Trade Network

The Global Trade Network includes state agencies, economic development entities across the state, university partners, and small to medium-sized Ohio companies who are focused on expanding their global strategies. This network is designed to drive Ohio's global competitiveness and navigate new opportunities to create a workforce with the right skillsets, provide Ohio companies with easily accessible export resources, and build a network of companies who can share their best practices.

The network includes those with varying degrees of global trade competencies: export competent specialty businesses, state agencies, individuals who are working within companies that export, as well as traditional degree-bound students, all interacting under the Global Trade Network framework. The Global Trade Network allows Fisher to be a leader in creating the nexus that enables business to successfully compete in a global environment.
