course will include a mandatory 10-day study tour to South Korea
over Spring Break. D496 will count towards the international

business students, and E497 will count towards the COAS culture
requirement or for general education credit. LAMP students are
encouraged to apply.
The class will be project- and discussion-oriented. The first part
of the semester will provide students with basic background
information on South Korea's business environment, language,
culture, and history. Then the class will visit southern South Korea
over spring break. While in South Korea students will visit
historical and cultural sites as well as companies and important
commercial areas. Upon return to IU, the class will review what was
learned on the trip, and students will prepare their reports and
projects for presentation.
