FHU College of Business Now Offering Study in Korea

Henderson, Tennessee - Feb 01, 2019

Freed-Hardeman University’s College of Business has announced an international study abroad opportunity in South Korea for this summer, Aug. 2-17, 2019. Students will engage with leaders of Korea-based companies, study international business ethics and explore Korean culture while earning three hours of academic credit, according to Dr. Matt Vega, associate professor of business law and ethics.

LG Chem Plant, Hyundai Motors Studio, Korea Independent Commission Against Corruption, Incheon Port and the demilitarized zone are tentatively scheduled as sites for student visits. Other possibilities include Samsung Electronics, SK Telecom, Kia and Vizio.

Classes and housing will be in the Bible Correspondence Center in the heart of Seoul’s university district.

Academic credit may be used to fulfill the requirement for Business Ethics in the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program or as an elective in the international business program. In addition to Vega, Dr. Jason Brashier, dean of the College of Business, will be the faculty members for the program.

Students may choose to add a short-term mission opportunity to work at Korean Christian Camp prior to the beginning of the course. Located on Sukmodo Island, the camp is for youth aged 10-17. Application and selection for this opportunity are separate from the study abroad program.

Eight students will be selected for this initial trip. Additional information about study abroad in South Korea is available at fhu.edu/academics/abroad/south-korea or by contacting Vega at mvega@fhu.edu.
