The Seoul Metropolitan Government (SMG) will operate the ‘Seoul Trade Academy for Foreigners’ with the goal of raising 750 trade experts among foreigners who wish to begin a trade startup in Seoul.
The ‘Seoul Trade Academy for Foreigners’ began operating in 2015 at the Seoul Global Center as an organization to support the financial independence of bilingual foreigners by nurturing them into trade experts and also to utilize them as a resource when developing overseas markets for small- and medium-sized Korean businesses.
The trade academy offers a one-stop solution for trade startups which includes basic training, mentoring, networking with domestic manufacturers and distributors, distribution exchanges, business matching, and other programs.
The 2017 Seoul Trade Academy for Foreigners will be operated in 30 sessions at three centers in Jongno, Gangnam, and Dongdaemun from March to November. Each session will be carried out for eight days for a total of 30 hours. Each center will provide weekday classes (19:00~22:00) and weekend classes (10:00~17:00) to provide more opportunities to foreign residents.
All foreign residents interested in beginning a trade startup, exchange students, and marriage immigrants (including naturalized citizens) with Korean language skills equivalent to Level 4 on the Test of Proficiency in Korean (TOPIK) are welcome to apply.
