Role of Corporations in Development: Chaebol and SMEs
• Introduction

Knowledge sharing for sustainable development and global prosperity is one of the key motivations behind establishing the KDI School of Public Policy and Management. The KDI School understands the valuable role the GDLN can play as an effective tool for knowledge sharing and learning. As part of the designated GDLN Korean Center's knowledge exchange initiatives, the KDI School is launching blended learning programs that focus on Korea's successful development experiences. 

Transitioning from an aid recipient to an OECD-DAC donor, Korea has achieved remarkable economic growth, democratization and social stability in less than half a century. With Korea's extraordinary development widely acknowledged and documented, Korea is in a unique position to share its experiences with emerging and developing countries as a means of furthering global development. 

This course will be an opportunity for participants to stimulate critical thinking about development experience and to reflect on their respective economies as well.

• Learninig Objective

“Why markets alone are difficult to generate the development process and why the corporations are indispensible to development in the capitalist economy" will be the main topic covered. A new theory of economic development which sees market, corporation and government as the indispensible holy trinity of development will be briefly introduced and applied. For development, all three should engage in economic discrimination of helping those who help themselves by treating economic difference differently which is necessary condition for development. Korean as well as world experiences will be investigated. Key message is “Market is the motivational economic discriminator of creating economic differences based on the market performances," "The growth of corporations in size as well as number is the process of development” and “The capitalist economy can be argued as ‘the corporate economy’ rather than the market economy."
