School of Management Leads Effort to Partner with South Korean University

South Korean exchange students

NYIT is working to create dual-degree offerings in hospitality management, business programs, and study abroad exchanges in partnership with Hallym University in South Korea. Robert J. Koenig, Ed.D., associate dean for the School of Management (pictured, front row, far right), is leading this effort, which began in summer 2012 with a successful exchange between NYIT and Hallym University.

From July 16 to Aug. 15, NYIT hosted 11 South Korean students and their dean, Dr. Byung Don Choe of Hallym University, for a four-week study abroad program. Koenig worked with Julie Fratrick, director of the NYIT Center for Global Academic Exchange, to organize an array of educational, professional, and cultural immersion experiences for the visiting group.

Koenig coordinated six private tours at top luxury hotels in Manhattan, including the Mandarin Oriental, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, and Waldorf=Astoria and convened experts from the hospitality industry to serve as guest speakers in the classroom. They included Rick Amato, vice president for the New York Hotel Association; Andrew Rigie, executive director for the New York City Hospitality Alliance; and Rocco LaForgia, director of worldwide sales accounts for Hilton Worldwide and president of the New York Chapter for the Professional Convention Management Association.

Students from Hallym University experienced New York's historical and cultural history by attending tours of Lincoln Center, the United Nations, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and International Gold Vault, Empire State Building, Blue Note Jazz Café, and Brotherhood Winery, America's oldest winery. They also completed two NYIT courses: business communications for hospitality students and professional hospitality leadership management.
