2015 GDLN Distance Learning Seminar Series

Human Capital Policy for Economic Development in Korea:

Focusing on the Industrialization Period 

Learning Objective:

Human capital is an essential component for economic growth and many empirical studies have proved a positive relation between them. However, many policy designers, especially those in developing countries, still want to identify specific measures that can activate the virtuous cycle. This lecture will introduce strategies of the South Korean government employed to accumulate human capital effectively during the early stage of development or industrialization in the 1960s and 1970s. The key strategies are brain circulation, coordination between education and industry, and effective financial management for human resource development. More detailed policy tools of each strategy will be covered in the lecture.

□ Date: June 23rd (Tue) 16:00pm-17:30pm
