There’s more to South Korea than kimchi, K-Pop and cat cafes…though they will certainly give you insight into the current culture. Studying abroad in South Korea provides an incredible opportunity for students to engage with global business leaders while learning from some of Asia’s most respected professors. A nation rich in both tradition and innovation, South Korea supports a population of more than 50 million, has one of the world’s largest economies (including the fourth largest in Asia), and plays host to multinational corporations like LG, Samsung and Hyundai. Ancient monasteries and palaces compete with high tech tastes and there always seems to be a festival going on. While studying in Seoul, you can spend the morning studying on-campus at Korea University, hike through hilly national parks in the afternoon, then discover delicious delights in the city center, with its addicting “work hard, play hard” attitude, in the evening. Alternatively, in Busan, you can live in a charming city by the sea, framed by mountains and full of both natural and cultural activities.
