OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- More than a dozen University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh business students will join a delegation from Mercury Marine next month on a trade mission to China and Korea.

It's the first overseas collaboration for UW-Oshkosh and Mercury Marine. The group will visit a number of manufacturing operations, suppliers and other industries in both countries in mid-May.

The university says the 15 business students will later make recommendations to Mercury executives on foreign-trade zone issues, transportation and other issues they learned about while on the trip.

UW-Oshkosh says the partnership with Mercury Marine will provide students with a unique global citizenship learning experience and firsthand knowledge of international business culture.
