Interview with students from Dartmouth-Tuck and IU Kelley school
- From early Jan 2020 to early Mar 2020, six American students from Dartmouth-Tuck and IU Kelley school attended an exchange student program at SKK GSB. Nicole Nava (Tuck, Class of 2020) and Alice YI (Kelley, Class of 2020) shared their feelings about their Study Abroad Program in SKK GSB in Korea.
Why did you choose SKK GSB to study abroad?
Nicole: I chose SKK GSB because I wanted the opportunity to live and study in Asia. After enjoying an undergrad exchange program in Europe, I really wanted the chance to live in a new environment. I have been to Seoul before and absolutely loved it! It's a wonderful city filled with many things to do, and I knew this would be a once in a lifetime chance!
Alice: I chose to study at SKKU because it was an opportunity for me to live in Korea. While I’ve visited Seoul many times before, this would be a new experience for me to live and study here.
What impressed you most in Korea and SKKU?
Nicole: Besides food, I would have to say the overall infrastructure and community in Seoul and SKK GSB have impressed me the most. Coming from New York, I am consistently impressed by public transport and the respect everyone has for each other and the environment around them. Community is a huge thing for me and is the major reason I chose Tuck as my full time MBA program. I am happy to find a similar feeling here at SKK GSB.
Alice: The food and transportation system always impress me in Korea. Delivery is incredibly fast and there are so many options.
How did you feel about the class and what did you learn from SKK GSB?
Nicole: Everyone in class has been so welcoming! I'm taking both full time and executive MBA courses and have loved all of my classmates. Everyone comes with a different experience, and I have thoroughly enjoyed how international the classes are.
Alice: The classes I took in SKK GSB are not too difficult for me. It’s been a great experience to learn with classmates from different cultures and backgrounds.
