Yeseung Lee, 2017, Seoul, Korea

Yeseung What you hope to gain through the MA Program: I have been working in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Korea since 2010. After entering the ministry, I had an opportunity to be in charge of various tasks including management of the human resources competency of the ministry, bilateral economic and trade issues with China and Japan, development cooperation with the international organizations and humanitarian assistance, political relations with Peru, Paraguay and Ecuador. I have a BA in economics, but I felt that I needed to study more so that I can utilize my academic knowledge to improve my job performance. I’m grateful for being able to study what I always wanted with the excellent professors and students in The Fletcher School.
