Oriental Language Courses

For BBU professors and researchers

The Oriental Business and Innovation Center (OBIC) offers free Oriental language courses outside the curriculum for BBU students and professors every semester. 

OBIC's overall goal is to contribute to the education of experts who can speak East Asian languages and are familiar with the cultures and economies of East Asian countries. For this reason, OBIC provides opportunity for BBU professors to attend Japanese, Chinese, Korean, bahasa Indonesia and Vietnamese courses free of charge.

Lessons are held twice a week, in 2x45-minute-long blocks in groups of 5-20 for 12 weeks with excellent language teachers, who encourage their students semester by semester to master the Oriental languages.

In the past 5 years, almost 500 students and professors have participated together in OBIC's language courses.
