(SIMS Code: 779011)

The certificate program in international security and trade provides the intellectual and practical context for linking enhanced trade across international borders such as the United States-Mexico border with enhanced security. By using technology, information sharing, collaboration, and policy changes to enhance public-private partnerships between the trade and security communities on both sides of the border, this program is designed to help federal law enforcement, such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection, to redefine borders as zones of major economic productivity and enhanced security from the success of business and government working together for the citizens of both countries.

A student wishing to be admitted to this certificate program must meet the General Admission Requirements as described in Part Two of this bulletin. Students must meet the professional, personal, scholastic, and other standards prescribed by the appropriate department and the Graduate Council. Participation in border-related professional activities such as U.S. Customs and Border Protection, professional trade organizations, corporate groups involved in international trade, and government leaders from both sides of the border or globally is required.
