International Business Interest & Activity Survey

Our good friend Shawn Kaskie from UNK’s Center for Rural Research and Development is assisting the College of Business and Technology track down educational funding for international business efforts. They are asking our local business community that is involved with international trade to fill out a short seven-question survey below. Please pass this along to anyone you can think of – thank you for your help! ~ Caleb

The University of Nebraska at Kearney’s College of Business and Technology is applying for a second round of funding from the U. S. Department of Education’s Title VI B Business and International Education Program.  The Business and International Education Program provides grants to enhance international business education programs and to expand the capacity of the business community to engage in international economic activities.

The grant application “Innovating for Global Entrepreneurship (I4GE): Increasing International Business Competitiveness in Rural Nebraska” activities are focused on the development of international business curriculum, educational training and workshops in international business for all target populations (students, faculty, and regional entrepreneurs), mentoring programs and international internships for students, international study abroad opportunities for Nebraska UNK students and faculty, and international faculty development opportunities.

The grant application process requires that we demonstrate local community and business need and/or support.  Therefore, we would like for you to take 5 minutes of your time to share with us your thoughts on the proposed new activities/programs in our application. You can take the survey here.
