Many Universities in Korea generally prefer to recruit native speakers to teach in English Medium courses than Non-Native Speakers. This study was done to analyze the perception of students about a Non Native Professor teaching Management courses in English. Fifteen students comprising of Korean Students, Chinese Students, and Exchange Students from Countries like Russia, France, Japan , Taiwan and students who already graduated as well as students enrolled in different courses taught by same professor more than two times was also included in the study. In-depth interview was conducted to know the perception of students who enrolled the professor’s course. This study clarifies lots of prejudice about Korean culture related to education and suitable conclusions and implications are made that may encourage policy makers to recruit qualified academicians from Non Native English Speaking countries such as India and Philippines in future.
