Finding the time to focus on developing a new international market is a challenge for many small businesses. The Ohio State University South Centers SBDC Export Assistance Network participates in the Ohio Export Internship Program by placing export-focused interns within southeast Ohio regional companies.

The Ohio Export Internship Program was designed to help businesses overcome challenges of international marketing by matching them with highly motivated students, from Ohio universities and colleges, who have taken export-focused coursework., such as this year’s interns and students at The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business, Youngstown State University’s Williamson College of Business Administration, or Cleveland State University’s Monte Ahuja College of Business.  

This year’s Export Internship Showcase, highlighting the accomplishments of the Class of 2019 and demonstrating the positive impact of partnerships among the state of Ohio, its universities, and private industry will be held Aug 8, 2019 at 1pm at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium. 

Speakers will include representatives from the Ohio Development Services Agency, The Ohio State University, Youngstown State University, Cleveland State University and participating companies.
