Shakhawan Ahmad, a Kurdistan Business School student, finished a summer international program with focus on business in South Korea. The program that touched on marketing and business models was for the duration of three weeks.
It was a “unique experience,” for me, Ahmad said, while explaining that the business model in South Korea is both unique and developed—one that the Kurdistan Region can look into to make further progress.
He studied Communication in Context: Global Brands and Intercultural Communication at Sookmyung Women's University (SWU), his host university.
He said that he feels “privileged” that he could enrich his knowledge in his field of studies through the summer course.
It was a new online course, the Korean Economic Development class, introduced by the UKH that helped Ahmad to get to know about this opportunity.
While in the South Korean capital, Ahmad presented details about the UKH at an event held for international students at Seoul National University.
The funded-summer programme among others also included special lectures about Korean history and culture, Korean cooking class, and a field trip to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ).
The South Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Sookmyung Women’s University co-fund the scholarship.
