Facilitating Global Business Partnerships with the World Trade Center
08.28.13 |
Outside the classroom, LVC provides other locally based opportunities for international studies, such as its internship at the World Trade Center of Harrisburg, which helps member companies explore and develop avenues for selling their products abroad. “The key objective of any internship is to prepare a student to be a contributing member of the professional community. What’s so fantastic with this World Trade Center internship is that students get exposure to multiple types of businesses—all of which are on the cusp of expanding internationally—which gives students a sense of just how vibrant are the international business opportunities in central Pennsylvania,” says Treva Clark, assistant professor of business, who worked with the World Trade Center to create the internship in 2010. “There are very few colleges like LVC that have a full organizational membership to the World Trade Center, which just reinforces the fact that LVC recognizes how important it is for us to create and foster opportunities to connect students with businesses that are leading the international growth and economic development of our region. This internship creates opportunities for our students to be a part of that.”

Business administration major Cody Richard ’14 is in his second semester as an intern at the World Trade Center of Harrisburg. “I wanted an internship in corporate America that would be very hands-on and where I’d learn a lot, so this has been perfect,” he says. “I work with a great variety of businesses. I’ve worked with York Wallcoverings, the world’s largest wallpaper manufacturer. I’ve worked with Martin’s Potato Rolls. I’ve worked with one-person businesses too, all the different extremes, which is really great.”

Clark, who teaches international business classes at LVC, feels strongly about the importance of instilling an international awareness and competency in every student. “I think you could make the argument that there isn’t a single major on campus that isn’t affected by international commerce,” she says. “Whether you’re going to be a physical therapist or a biologist, the competition that’s occurring internationally is something about which ever single student needs to be aware, whether they’re going into business or not.”
