The World Bank Group is launching a FREE Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Policy Lessons from South Korea’s Development on January 17, 2017. To sign up, please visit: https://www.edx.org/course/kee01x-korea-economic-development-wbgx
The MOOC will last four weeks and is taught by prominent representatives of academic and research institutions in South Korea and the United States. It discusses South Korea’s compelling story of economic growth, and how it was able to make the transition from a resource-poor, low-income nation to a high-income economy in only three decades. The course examines South Korea’s past developmental experience as well as its current strategy and policy initiatives to overcome global and domestic challenges, and sustain economic growth into the 21st century. Participants will also have an opportunity to consider and discuss institutional and policy lessons applicable to the developmental challenges facing their own countries.
