The IU Maurer School of Law is offering 10 $30,000 scholarships as part of a fellowship program with Sungkyunkwan University’s Graduate School of Business in South Korea, according to an IU press release.
The scholarships are available to international fellows and they will generally complete two years of study at the Bloomington campus and one year of study in South Korea before finishing a Master of Business Administration joint degree at IU.
Academically qualified students who are accepted to the SKK MBA program will receive help and support from both universities and should manage to finish their joint degrees in four years, according to the release.
"We are deeply grateful to SKK GSB for their generous scholarship support of this program," said Austen Parrish, dean of the Maurer School of Law, in a press release. "Twelve of our students have already earned their MBA from SKK GSB, and their educational experience, along with the opportunity to live in a dynamic, globally focused city, has been invaluable."
Both universities and programs are ranked among the best in the world.
Sungkyunkwan University, founded in 1398, was ranked No. 1 among private Korean universities in 2014 according to JoongAng Daily University Rankings. The SKK business school ranked first in Korea for seven years and No. 51 in the world by the 2018 Financial Times Global MBA Rankings.
The IU Maurer School of Law, founded in 1842, was ranked No. 30 in the country by U.S. News & World Report and the highest ranked public law school in Indiana, according to the release.
"This is an unprecedented collaboration between one of the world's leading business schools and a renowned law school across two continents, to provide a unique global experience for its participants," said Jae Ha Lee, dean and professor of finance at SKK Global School of Business, in the release.
