THE Silliman University recently hosted 15 students from Hannam University in South Korea to study Business Leadership and Philippine History and Culture Appreciation.

The program started on July 3 and ended last July 25, 2023.

CBA dean Dr. Wilma Milo Tejero-Libarios said the program is composed of two courses — Business Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and Economy and Appreciation of Philippine History and Culture.

“Activities in the classroom and outside of it were planned to be engaging, interactive, and transformative for both our Hannam and Silliman students,” Tejero-Libarios said.

SU said each student from Hannam University was assigned a “buddy” or partner student from SU.

The program included lectures, team-building activities, case study analysis, group report presentations, visits to museums and historical sites in the province during weekends, playing Filipino traditional games, preparing traditional Filipino food, dancing traditional Philippine dances, and educational field exposures.

“We hope that our students return to Korea not only enriched in global business knowledge and better English communication skills, but also with a great appreciation of our history and culture,” Libarios said.

Hannam University Professor Kwangyil Park said that they seek to continue the collaboration with SU.

“We hope to be able to invite students and faculty to Korea so that they can also experience Korean culture,” he said.
