Building leadership in trade
We recognize that to advance sustainable global trade, we need to invest in informing and training the people engaged in trade. Our educational initiatives reach students, educators and professionals around the world, helping them to develop, teach and implement pragmatic solutions to lead the next stage of sustainable global trade.
Our annual International Trade Rankings help students and employers identify the best trade-related masters programs around the world.
We commission the SME Sustainable Trade Awards to recognize and amplify best sustainability practices among small and medium enterprises.

Individuals who have benefited from our Global Trade Leader Program are invited to join the Hinrich Foundation Alumni Association. It was established to create a community of individuals committed to advancing sustainable global trade and to help provide opportunities for lifelong learning through mentoring, professional development, training and knowledge sharing among Hinrich Foundation alumni.
The association also serves to nurture the future leaders for the Hinrich Foundation.
We partner with leading institutions such as the National University of Singapore and the National Press Foundation to host courses that give participants a deeper understanding of the forces transforming the global trade ecosystem throughout Asia and beyond.
