In learning about South Korea's strides to improve their economy, I have also learned principles that can be applied to my country.

All of the assignments and videos demonstrated what the South Korean economy went through while critically asking whether such ideas were unique to South Korea or able to be copied!

It worth to complete this course and learn how South Korea changed positively.
