“When I heard for the first time in 2013 about the mission, core value and vision of the Dream Together Master program (DTM) at Seoul National University (SNU), I was very impressed because of the uniqueness of this effort. I studied your program brochure about the interdisciplinary course structure of DTM and the given module topics, supported by professors with excellent expertise in teaching and research. When I visited the campus in March 2014 to lecture as an invited guest speaker, I learned even more about DTM by communicating and discussing with the students coming from Africa, Asia and South America. Qualified students out of these countries applying for a scholarship receive an impressive support of the Ministry of Culture, Sport and Tourism (MCST) and the Korea Sports Promotion Foundation (KSPO). Indeed, the Republic of Korea is giving something back to young academic people in developing countries who would never have a chance to get enrolled in such an academic program at home because of various reasons. This is also a part of a true Olympic Spirit and Olympic Solidarity. I would like to thank and congratulate my colleagues at SNU in doing such a wonderful and really important job to bridge the academic gap for some many enthusiastic students and future leaders in sport administration and sport management. I am sure the DTM students will become good role models for the next generation in their home countries and will be grateful lifelong for the academic support they received from Korea”.
