CFEs Should Consider Trade Compliance as a Profession
Presenter: Julia Komarovskaya (The MathWorks, Inc)
Trade compliance professionals help protect companies, but they also play a role in safeguarding national and global security. This emerging field offers exciting career opportunities for CFEs whose skill sets are a great match for companies that need professionals who can prevent and detect trade violations that threaten real harm. Trade compliance as a profession has undergone rapid development during the last decade, which isn’t yet reflected in academia. Few colleges offer programming or degrees in this field. So, companies fill their trade compliance staffing needs by poaching from neighboring fields and training new hires. This session will discuss principles of trade compliance, how to further secure compliance programs, and using CFE skills in trade compliance.
