PROGRAM LOCATION

Seoul is a city rich in history and tradition. The city was founded in 1392 when it became the capital of the Chosun Dynasty, which fell in 1910. It is now the capital city of South Korea, and traces of the former dynasty are still very much a part of the city's landscape. Besides being the capital city with an exciting modern architecture and a cosmopolitan community, Seoul is the political, cultural, commercial, financial, educational and recreational center of South Korea. It is home to major corporations, banks, government offices, leading schools and universities, theaters and entertainment facilities. Seoul also offers rich and satisfying tourist attractions and events.


ACADEMIC INSTITUTION

Students will enroll at the Korea University Business School. Founded in 1905, the Korean University Business School (KUBS) was the first and today is one of the most prestigious business schools in the country.  A variety of business classes can be taken in English, and Korean language courses are also available. Those wishing to further immerse themselves in the Korean business world may elect to participate in an internship
