Santa Ana College’s International Business Program received the Responding to Globalization award on Nov. 17 at the Orange County Business Council’s sixth annual Turning Red Tape Into Red Carpet Awards.
The award honors economic development strategies and programs that make an effort to enable communities, businesses, and economic development organizations to better engage the global economy or to more resiliently respond to the challenges brought by globalization.
Santa Ana College’s business program also received a Certificate of Special Recognition from U.S. Representative Mimi Walters.
Santa Ana College first established its certificate and associate degree programs in international business in 1996. The programs were developed in response to the college’s perceived need for hands-on training in global trade.
It’s now the largest community college program of its kind in the country, according to the college.
