Abstract


This study attempts to explore the aspect of International Human Resource Development with reference to foreign students currently enrolled in Universities in South Korea in terms of the role human resource development helps the country of origin of the international students and how international students can link the International Human Resource Development goals to their home country's strategic needs. The study, studied the responses of 46 international students randomly selected from 76 responses among the 83 returned survey questionnaires. The surveys contained information about the foreign scholars' attitudes, perceptions and motivations with respect to the training received or receiving in foreign countries and the connection to the strategic goals from their home country. The results of the study offer meaningful assistance to the suggested assumptions showing that attitudes, perceptions and motivations have significant influence not only in the choices individuals made with regard to studying in a foreign country but also in the accuracy of familiarity and understanding of the strategic needs of the country of origin. Greater part of the participants has seen their training as important to their countries to facilitate economic development. The findings may have remarkable contribution to HRD professionals, funding agencies and training facilitators.
