What Our Students Say About the Program

“I thoroughly enjoyed this class and I learned more than I expected to within a 6 week period. The format of having to write essays and case studies based on particular scenarios has been very useful to me as it causes you to dig into the regulations to figure out how they would apply. For me, this is a much better way of learning and more importantly retaining what I learned.”

About Trade Compliance

The need for trade compliance professionals at all levels throughout the global supply continues to grow. The reason is Increasingly harsh penalties, fines (easily in the tens of millions of dollars) and other sanctions (i.e. the possibility of jail time for responsible parties) resulting from violations are what drives this need.

Consequently, exporting corporations need the internal skill sets and knowledge provided in this program to mitigate the tremendous risks and liabilities associated with their trade effort. In addition, corporations equally need outside legal representation to litigate regulatory licensing matters that may arise.

The Graduate Regulatory Trade Compliance Program provides the knowledge and skills needed to meet the needs of industry in maintaining compliance with the continually expanding regulations from the State and the Commerce departments.
