In the modern world there are two conflicting flows; convergence through regional integration and polarization of integrated regions. Although those flows enhance the development of the social economy, at the same time there are various problems occurring in both local society and international society. These problems include conflict, economic inequality, and environmental issues. In the socioeconomics course students analyze modern societal trends using the theory of economics and business, and they also aim to create specific strategies for solving the problems of modern society.
