About Us


The World Trade Center Institute (WTCI) helps existing and emerging leaders from the Mid-Atlantic develop the skills, knowledge and connections they need to make the world a better place. Our focus is people from a variety of sectors – such as banking, teaching and manufacturing – whose work touches other countries and cultures.

We are a people-first organization that challenges and rewards its team members

We hire innovative, creative, high-energy and talented professionals who have a passion for enhancing international business, driving a positive impact in global communities and developing and transforming business leaders. We believe that, by sharing knowledge and experiences, we make a positive impact in the Mid-Atlantic and across the globe.

We are inclusive, celebrate all cultures and strive to open minds and hearts so people feel enriched.

Embrace communication & authenticity

We value open and honest dialogue. We, too, celebrate diversity and individuality.
