The MIT-Korea Program provides MIT students with opportunities to work in these fields and participate first-hand in the rapidly expanding world of Korean business, technology, and innovation that is making an outsized impact on the world. Students experience the Korean “can-do” culture and a dynamic, leading-edge economy and society built anew on a foundation of science and technology.
“MISTI broadens your understanding of the world,” said Kelly Kochanski ’15 whose experience in the Himalayas has inspired her to pursue a PhD in geology. “Travel to India pulled me out of the MIT bubble — and shaped the avenues I want to pursue.”
This summer, MISTI asked its participants to try something new: show, don’t tell. In an effort to experience interning, researching, teaching, and collaborating through the eyes of an MIT student, MISTI requested video footage from over 550 students who went abroad this summer.
