China dominates global headlines and captures the imagination with its transformation from a centrally-planned economy to a market-based economy. A dynamic emerging market, Thailand has become a firmly established newly industrialized country with an economy that relies heavily on exports. South Korea enjoys a well-developed political and economic infrastructure but is nonetheless challenged by robust competition from its regional neighbors. Gain insight and understanding of Asia’s economic opportunities and challenges as you meet with business and government leaders from across the continent.

Nike/Sabrina, US Commercial Service, Ulsan port, Invista/Koch, Hyundai, Kiswire, General Motors

It gave me the opportunity to refine my own personal interests by showing me how my unique set of skills could be best utilized in a professional setting.”
