On May 3 at the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Lee and ULM President Dr. Nick J. Bruno signed a memorandum of understanding that will offer Hanbat and ULM students a new concentration within an existing degree. The degree is ULM's master's in educational technology leadership; the new concentration is mobile and wireless communication.
Hanbat University is a national university in Daejeon, South Korea.
Of the partnership, Lee said, "This opportunity will be a good chance for our students to study at one of the most advanced universities in the United States. I am sure that this program will become a pathway to work together in the development of joint degree programs in the near future, which will be very beneficial to both of us.
Above all, the cooperation with the two universities will be very helpful to the internationalization of both universities."
ULM and Hanbat began their partnership in the fall of 2011. As a result of their unique exchange program, students have participated in a two-month internship program.
