"Wonderful experience and I encourage any other student to participate in an exchange."

"I would recommend the business exchange program to anyone, and especially with Hanyang University Business School in Seoul. Hanyang University was very welcoming and it was extremely helpful to have an on-campus dorm provided courtesy to the partnership between the two universities. HYU provides many helpful resources such as an orientation, buddy program, and student clubs that hosts several events."
