Projects to improve the teaching of international business and support linkages between institutions of higher education and the business community engaged in international commerce. Howard Community College's International Business and Education Center developed a one-stop shopping International Trade Assistance Center (ITAC) which promotes economic development in Howard County and the State of Maryland with Title VI funding. ITAC provides services to businesses in all phases of exporting. Furthermore, ITAC has partnered with several public entities, including Maryland's International Division, World Trade Center Institute and Howard County's Economic Development Authority and others. These partnerships enable ITAC to serve businesses and promote their capacity to sell its goods and services outside the United States. Moreover, the International Business and Educational Center (IBEC) has launched major initiatives to internationalize both credit and non-credit courses at Howard Community College. These initiatives include international faculty exchanges. The first-hand experience enables faculty to enrich both the curriculum and the student awareness of international business issues. Purdue University's School of Agriculture trained twenty undergraduate students in agribusiness, Russian language and area studies. The students studied Russian language, area studies, agriculture and business practices in both Indiana and Novgorod, Russia. Each student collected and compiled market research for Indiana businesses and were involved in several trade workshops in Indiana to increase the capacity of Indiana agribusiness to conduct trade activities in Russia.
