[Scholarship is offered for this program]
The KDI School was founded as an affiliated educational institution of the Korea Development Institute (KDI), a premier government economic think tank at the forefront of social science research for the past 40 years. Drawing from the resources of the institute, the KDI School provides exceptional education that combines current academic theories with comprehensive and innovative practical research to support the national vision and key policy agendas. The quality of our educational programs and faculty rivals with internationally renowned institutions, and in 2014 our MPP program has been accredited by Network of Schools in Public Policy, Affairs and Administration (NASPAA). This is the first NASPAA accreditation in Korea, and the second outside the U.S.A. KDI School of Public Policy and Management is providing Korean Government Scholarship Program (NIIED GKS-KGSP), which is a 3-year scholarship program for outstanding international candidates.
