Alumni Profile

STUDENT NAME
Anthony Cambas (USA)

COURSE NAME
Master of International Customs Law and Administration

WHEN DID YOU GRADUATE?
2008

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT JOB POSITION?
Director, Center for International Trade and Development &
Director, International Trade Center - Small Business Development Center at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma USA. 

HOW HAS YOUR TIME STUDYING WITH CCES IMPACTED ON YOUR WORKING ROLE SINCE GRADUATING? 
It has given me a broad and truly global perspective on the regulation of trade by Customs and other authorities at global, multilateral, regional and national levels. The insight and understanding I gained from the time I spent studying with the CCES has benefited me in my work as an international consultant on Customs reform and modernization projects around the world as well as helping me provide more impactful export assistance to the SME’s I work with on a daily basis to either begin exporting or to expand their international sales.

I am a former U.S. Customs Import Specialist Team Leader and worked in Miami, Florida and have provided technical assistance to various Customs administrations and trade authorities in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In addition, I am a U.S. Licensed Customs Broker (LCB), Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) and NASBITE Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP).
