With Seoul, South Korea fast emerging as a powerhouse capital on the world economic and social stage, its importance as a center of culture and finance has come to be noted by the various urban development planners and economic policymakers across the world. That is why as a graduate student of Urban and Regional Planning, it is highly important that I too turn my sights towards understanding what makes the government policies and programs of Seoul work. The government policies and programs that are currently in place have become a template for the success that Korea enjoys and which other city capitals are trying extremely hard to emulate. Attending the “Case Study Management in Seoul” program at the University of Seoul in sponsorship by the Seoul Korea Metropolitan Government would be a dream come true for me. Being a keen and observant student of public administration, I am conscious of the fact that this is a rare and privileged opportunity that I cannot pass up. Being one of the largest and most progressive cities in the world, this course will allow me to understand and experience first-hand Korean politics, economy, and culture. I am particularly looking forward to being able to create future business and political contacts during my exchange of ideas with the other program participants. As a participant in this program, I will stand to benefit greatly from the lectures that shall be conducted by the best and brightest city planning experts of Seoul. I am greatly interested in learning how to seamlessly coordinate and implement urban policies related to culture promotion, municipal finances, the green policy of the country, it's new human resources management system, and other urban planning related topics. Seoul has long been known as the country where environmental protection has been at the forefront of their urban development and it is that template that I feel most interested in as our world continues to become environmentally conscious in all of its urban planning and development undertakings.
