The School of Executive Education at the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg is furthering its contact with Asia by organising a study trip to South Korea together with current and former participants in the MBA programme; all with leading positions within Swedish private and public sector.

The Korea Business Programme is being organised in collaboration with Yonsei University; one of Korea’s foremost universities. The purpose of the trip, taking place in the beginning of November, is to deepen knowledge of how companies in South Korea work on questions of leadership, finance and marketing, and to develop and reinforce contacts with Asia.

The participants will attend a number of lectures combined with visits to South Korean companies such as Hyundai Glovis, Hyundai Motor Company and Samsung Engineering. Also on the programme is a meeting with Sweden’s Ambassador to South Korea, Lars Danielsson.

“We’re already looking very much forward to the trip and the Korea Business Programme fits in well with our profile towards the Asian market.  South Korea has undergone an unparalleled development and is an increasingly important trade partner for Swedish companies.  We’re proud to be able to offer a programme with connections to business as well as academia and culture, and with opportunities to make ties with important business contacts”, comments Per-Olof Larsson, CEO GU School of Executive Education.

In addition to the forthcoming trip to South Korea there are two other trips – one week in China and a week in India – in the regular two-year MBA programme.
