Fostering links between business and education
The Northern Wisconsin International Trade Association (NWITA) is a non-profit membership organization committed to expanding the knowledge, interest, and activity in international trade in northern Wisconsin and the surrounding regions.
NWITA provides the support, resources, and a networking platform for area businesses as they compete in a global economy. We are a partnership organization designed so our members can work together to foster international trade in Northern Wisconsin and the surrounding regions. We assist and mentor area businesses in their international endeavors through consulting, speaker events, online resources, student interns, and newsletters. We hope that through this NWITA we will be able to foster a strong link between business and education, giving all entities a better understanding of international issues.
NWITA is a result of the Partnerships in International Education (PIE) initiative funded by a US Department of Education Title VI grant and the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The founding partners of NWITA are the UW-Eau Claire College of Business, Center for International Education, AIESEC student chapter, and the Wisconsin Department of Commerce Bureau of Investment and Export.
