The curricular link at Fletcher to the East Asia region is the Pacific Asia Field of Study. With a great number of students from the region and additional students interested in it, there are annually at least three student organizations linked to the area: the Japan Club, the Asia Club, and the Fletcher China Studies Society. The Institute for Business in the Global Context has conducted research on the region, including a report on business in “BRIC” nations. And conferences are organized in many years either by the student groups or by members of the faculty. Read about the most recent conference on East Asian Security and the challenges for U.S. Policy and the region here.
In addition, there are several options for students who wish to take a semester to study in East Asia, including China Europe International Business School, Shanghai and Yonsei University – Graduate School of International Studies (GSIS), Korea.
