HUFS held a launching ceremony for the internship program offered by the state-run Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) at the Graduate School of the Seoul Campus on July 11, helping HUFSans to broaden their work experience as future globetrotting trade experts.
The university celebrated the kick-off of the 20th batch of HUFSans, sending 76 students to KOTRA's overseas offices in 42 countries as interns.
Every semester, the KOTRA-HUFS Internship Program helps students to build broad and in-depth experiences in the fields of trade and business at the trade agency's overseas branches.
Kim Min-jung, director of the Career Support Center, chaired the ceremony and HUFS President Kim In-chul, presented students’ representatives with the university’s badge. In addition to the ceremony, the university also provided students with an orientation on their duties.
So far, HUFS has sent off 1,588 interns to KOTRA since it first launched the program in 2008. Students can not only earn 15 credits through the six-month program, but can also build experiences for their future career.
