Interesting that they compare it to the University of Michigan summer institute. I took survey methods there (and got additional credit for finishing up the class project so it was a full writeup for the sponsor) and took two courses in sampling from Leslie Kish (who wrote the book on survey sampling), Martin Frankel, Graham Kalton, and Robert Groves (a young PhD at the U of M Institute for Social Research who's now head of the U.S. Census Bureau). I learned a lot there -- far more than I knew at the time -- which has proven to be of great value during my professional life.
I don't think I'm going to North Korea, though. I haven't taught these courses before, and there are bound to be a number of academics with better academic credentials applying (and whose universities will cover the cost).
