Korea and Japan

Program Details

The most effective means of learning about international business and culture is to visit a country, observe business first-hand, and interact with business leaders in that country. Participants will explore Japan and Korea's business and cultural sites to gain a more complete understanding of the unique context for conducting business in foreign countries, meet with business owners, and become aware of the issues and impacts of the political tension in Korea.

Selection Criteria:

Participants Must:

  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Be a high school graduate or above.
  • Read, speak, and understand English.
  • Be able to move reasonably quickly over city terrain. For students whom this presents a problem, taxis may be arranged as recommended by WSU's disability office. No immunizations beyond those expected of any WSU student should be required.
