|How to register
- Each program is composed of various sessions.
- Guided Tour Session
- GKEDC exhibition halls capture pivotal moments in Korea’s modern history in economic, social, and cultural contexts. We emphasize how important it is to collaborate among three key entities: government, private sector, and civil society in Korea. The international education and cooperation team will guide you through the exhibitions and present overall stories showcasing how the Republic of Korea has made one of the most dramatic transformations in a short time period. The Country has transitioned from a resource-poor, low-income nation to one of the most technologically advanced nations in the world. This miraculous journey has been accompanied by challenges and hardships. This session lasts 40-60 minutes depending on the program.
- Expert Session
- GKEDC has a wide range of networks with various subject experts. If there is a demand for a deeper understanding of specific topics which are in line with the Center’s mission, we would invite world-class subject experts to fill the knowledge gap for participants. This session lasts 50-60 minutes including Q&A.
- Activity Session
- GKEDC educational programs are highly interactive and participatory. Interactive sessions are designed to help participants create a link between knowledge contents of what they have learned during the program and apply it to their individual experiences and country context. It includes activities aimed to stimulate mutual exchange of country cases among participants. For example, participants may be engaged in a discussion to identify stakeholders, explore driving forces, and/or engage in peer reviews. Korea Management Association Consulting (KMAC) researchers will facilitate and may require other world-class experts to co-facilitate the session to collaborate closely with participants. Activities are varied depending on the programs.
