Kelce College of Business Dean Paul Grimes and Associate Professor Sang-Heui Lee spent time in Korea over the summer working on recruiting and a partnership with Woosong University’s relatively new SolBridge International School of Business.

“We are working on finalizing a 2+2 program that ultimately will enable Korean students to navigate back and forth between here and there for coursework,” Grimes said.

The two also made a presentation about PSU through Education USA, a U.S. Department of State network of more than 425 international student advising centers in more than 175 countries, at the U.S. Embassy there.

They continued building a relationship with Seoul National University of Science and Technology. And, while in Seoul, they also hosted the first official Gorilla Gathering of alumni in Korea.

“Having a cultural understanding and getting to know people one on one is so important in today’s world of email exchanges,” Grimes said. “We’re building relationships, understanding how they operate, their curriculums and constraints, which is all very beneficial to furthering what we do here on campus for our international students.”
