Small Business


The Small Business Administration created an online course to help small businesses explore exporting opportunities in international markets. Global Enterprise: A Primer on Exporting is a free, self-paced course that provides practical guidance on exploring international markets.

The course illustrates how to identify international markets, develop an export strategy, make and receive international payments, and finance trade operations. The SBA’s partnership with the Department of Commerce and the Export-Import Bank also offers federal export programs and services through the U.S. Export Assistance Centers.

The export primer course is one of nearly 30 online tutorials offered by the SBA on its virtual campus, the Small Business Training Network, at www.sba.gov/services/training/onlinecourses.
