Twenty three GSU students from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business, guided by professors J.P. Shim and Mike Gallivan from the department of computer information systems, spent two weeks in South Korea – with a stopover in Hong Kong – to gain valuable insights into one of the world’s fastest growing regions.
Shim, who is heading up the newly formed Korean-American Business Center, organized the tour. He has led more than 170 student trips to Korea and Asia over the course of his career.
Recent studies have shown that Korea is currently leading the world in every segment of the tele-communications market, ranging from broadband growth, to mobile applications, Internet growth and cellular TV, said Ephraim McLean, chair of the department of computer information systems.
