FITT 2012 Educational Awards
FITT gives out four awards each year to students who’ve demonstrated exceptional academic performance in their international business program. These students are selected from hundreds of candidates enrolled at any of the more than 60 educational institutions whose international business programs are recognized by FITT.
“These exceptional students will shape the future of international trade,” says Caroline Tompkins, president of FITT. “They will be the ones driving change, growth and prosperity within the global marketplace in the coming years.”
