Description

The Korean LBAT (Language Business And Technology) program began in the summer of 2010, offering 9 credits for 8 weeks in Seoul, Korea.  Currently, the program accomodates two levels:  high-beginner (2nd year level) and high-intermediate (3rd year level).  Through Korean LBAT, students can learn Korean (the language & culture) intensively for 8 weeks, seek for potential career fields while visiting companies in Korea and/or having hands-on experience of the real business world in Korea, and learn how to survive and enjoy a totally different environment.  The program will hopefully make the participants stronger mentally, socially, and professionally.  Please come join us!
