About KDI School

The KDI School of Public Policy and Management is a graduate school of policy studies founded in 1997 with the support of the Korean government. As the nation's most respected economic think tank, KDI has consistently contributed to the government's policy making and implementation. Based on the KDI's four decade long research and development consulting experience, our school has been educating public officials and private sector managers from around the globe by providing strategic tools to deal with the growing complexities of the modern world.

In 2010 to further the success of the G20 Seoul Summit, the Korean government has requested us to place a greater emphasis on development policy. To carry out this mandate we have recently launched a Master of Development Policy program; our development lab is undertaking many research projects to interact with the new education program; and we are hiring a large number of new faculty who have a high level of expertise in the field.

KDI School is committed to establishing a dynamic framework for knowledge-sharing, where outstanding teaching and research can directly support balanced, sustainable growth in the developing world. To this aim we provide a work environment conducive to academic creativity, offering financial support for research, subsidizing trips to overseas conferences, and reducing teaching loads for tenure-track faculty members. The school provides relocation assistance and faculty housings on a request and availability basis. All Courses are taught in English.

Candidates will have the opportunity to have an interview during the 2013 ASSA Meeting in San Diego, CA (January 4-6, 2013). To be considered for an interview in San Diego, all application materials must arrive by December 3, 2012.
