A delegation of 34 MBA students and professors from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah, visited The Korea Times headquarters in Seoul on Friday as part of their academic field trip.

Korea Times CEO Lee Chang-sup welcomed them with a brief presentation about the nation’s oldest English daily and shared his views on Korea’s journalism, economy, politics and other issues that will help deepen their understanding of South Korea.

“During my years in the private sector, it became obvious to me that there is no substitute for actual experience in international business,” said Michael A. Keene, the delegation leader, explaining the visit. “This is why I am so delighted that our MBA program, unlike those of most other American universities, requires this sort of coursework and international immersion.”

They will stay in Seoul until March 13, during which they plan to visit local companies and meet ranking government officers. After visiting Seoul, the students will continue their travels with a visit to Hong Kong and Shenzhen, where they will study logistics and manufacturing, before returning to the United States.
