Ohio Export Internship Program


There are Ohio companies that have achieved success in international markets, but lack the resources to focus on developing new international business. Providing an export-focused intern to these companies allows them to expand their international efforts while providing college students with real-world business experience.


The Ohio Development Services Agency, The Ohio State University Max M. Fisher College of Business, Youngstown State University's Williamson College of Business Administration, Cleveland State University's Monte Ahuja College of Business and University of Dayton School of Business Administration match Ohio companies with student interns, from universities around the state, who have taken export-focused course work. The program provides companies 50 percent reimbursement for internship wages and ongoing export support for companies and students during the internship.

For Whom

Ohio companies interested in increasing exports and college students interested in gaining international trade experience.
