Tell us about your International Experience trip. Where did you go? What was your favorite experience?
During our 10-day trip to South Korea with Professor Sang Kim, we extensively explored the country's economy, culture, and success through companies like Samsung, LG, and Hyundai. We met with 11 organizations across diverse industries, including healthcare, media, and transportation, providing us with a diverse perspective on South Korea's business environment. We also gained a deeper understanding of the geopolitical challenges faced by South Korea due to its location in a heavily-armed region of the world and how it impacts the country's politics and economy. A highlight of our trip was our meetings with Hyundai Motor Group, where we gained valuable insights into their innovative initiatives in electric and hybrid vehicles, as well as autonomous driving. It was impressive to witness Hyundai's leadership in technological advancements in the automotive industry, reflecting South Korea's commitment to sustainability and cutting-edge technology for the future of mobility.
