After graduating from Lehigh University, I worked at the National Assembly of Republic of Korea for one year. In 2006, I started my military service for ROK and was discharged in 2008. After military duty (mandatory in ROK), did my MBA at Korea University. Currently, I am a Ph.D candidate for International Peace and Security at Korea University.
Advice: Take as many courses as you want and try to attend academic seminars where you can share your views with other scholars.
