CONNECTION TO THE INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS COMMUNITY
The employment climate is more competitive than ever and it is important for recent graduates to stand out among their peers. Additionally, as the world becomes relatively smaller due to technology, the demand for qualified employees to fill positions related to international business continues to increase. ITCGKC is the bridge for your University, and your students, to the international business community in the Kansas City region. We fulfill this mission in a variety of ways.
INTERNSHIP PROMOTION AND CONNECTION
Through our business activities and the vast networks of our members, we compile lists of companies hungry for fresh talent to join their team for internships and externships. Member Universities are encouraged to take advantage of our relationship with those companies to provide opportunities for your students to get some real world experience with a company engaged in international trade. We also offer participation in our annual Global Career Bridge which allows students to visit international trade companies and meet with hiring managers in the industry.
GLOBAL TRADEWINS® - THE INTERNATIONAL TRADE GAME
Global TradeWins® is a business simulation exercise presented in a dynamic and interactive format which involves all participants as executives of imaginary companies located throughout the world with interests in a certain technology. Each company has separate objectives and either produces or utilizes varying versions of the technology involved.
Extremely flexible in its operation, Global TradeWins® can be run for groups of between 10 and 100 participants, and handled in varying time frames. The simulation is administered by seasoned ITCGKC executives and results in a variety of outcomes that expose participants to many of the challenges of international business.
