In early 2018, we took a group of students from Kyunghee University who had a strong desire to learn more about the new technologies that are being developed at Boston, a hub of research and entrepreneurship, so that they could further foster their entrepreneurial spirit. Our group of students had the opportunity to not only get a feel of the atmosphere of Boston, but also were able to attend talks and lectures by distinguished professors from Harvard and MIT in both the hard sciences/engineering as well as business. Furthermore, students took back the ideas and content that they learned in Boston and were able share to other friends and classmates back on campus. Through this event, students discovered that their career paths and goals were not only limited opportunities on campus and within Korea but also extended globally.
