Prediction Strategy in South Korea

Keeping the La Sierra University School of Business on the cutting edge of economic and political theory, Dr. Hana Oh is in Korea this month, delivering a presentation on the advancement of prediction strategy. Dr. Oh is the Assistant Director of the Transnational Research Consortium, a non-profit formed by leaders from the La Sierra University School of Business, the Mark O. Hatfield School of Government at Portland State University and the School of Politics and Economics at Claremont Graduate University. The Consortium enables its participants to better serve their students by conducting state-of-the-art research, by providing curriculum and project expertise, and by providing the outcome of research to the business and policy communities. In this way, the Consortium's joint intellectual resources provide research capabilities which are superior to the services which could be provided by any participant acting alone.

Dr. Oh, who is also teaching an undergraduate Macro-Economics course at La Sierra University this quarter, will be sharing research and analysis on the latest developments in social science theories and methodologies that are used for computational simulation, strategy building, and prediction of business, economics, politics, and conflict. In an e-mail update this week, Dr. Oh explained that she was invited to speak at the South Korea Agency for Defense Developement as they are interested in not only analysis of conflict when it occurs, but the bigger picture - the analysis and prediciton of decision making processes before, during, and after conflict - to show how methods and theories in economics and politics can be used for conflict prediction and strategy.
