Sunway Students’ Trip to South Korea

A group of third year students, currently studying the Bachelor of Science (Hons) in International Hospitality Management at Sunway University, went on a week-long study trip to Seoul, South Korea. The February trip was planned as part of their assignment for the Strategic Management module where they were required to conduct field work research and data collection throughout the trip.

The students were accompanied by Daniel Chong Ka Leong, Lecturer, and Lai Mun Loon, Teaching Fellow of the Sunway University Business School. Throughout the trip, the group was hosted by Daelim University College. They visited Dongdaemun Market, a large commercial district comprising traditional markets and shopping centres in Seoul, 63 City, a 63-floor building with spectacular views of Seoul, and the Korean Folk Village, a tourist attraction exhibiting Korean culture and history.
