Department of Economics

The Korean Economy and Culture (ECON E477) introduces business students to the Korean economy, language and culture. The purpose is to increase students’ knowledge of Korean economy and culture so that they can engage in more effective economic activities with Korea and Asian countries. This course emphasizes the importance of appreciation for cultural diversity, especially the importance of understanding cultural and historical contexts in different countries as they shape economics and business. Course learning includes campus based meetings for economic and cultural study during Summer semester, a two week intensive study abroad experience in Korea, and debriefing sessions after return to the United States. Approximately 10 students will be selected to participate each year. They may be at the undergraduate or graduate level and they must be business or economics majors enrolled in business courses.
