Bloustein School part-time lecturer Wansoo Im recently traveled to Korea to promote the Bloustein School’s Korea Development Institute Scholars program to potential candidates. The program, which began in 2001, is a partnership with the  School of Public Policy and Management of the Korea Development Institute (KDI). Each spring, approximately 4-6 students arrive in New Jersey to join the Master of City and Regional Studies (MCRS) degree program.

The Bloustein-KDI Scholars program generates much interest at the school.

As part of their two-year master’s course, KDI students are required to spend one year at an overseas university. Rutgers and the Bloustein School are very well known in Korean academic and planning circles, and offer KDI students an excellent opportunity to broaden their knowledge and practical skills through the combination of coursework and professional internship.
