Master's Degree Program in Public Administration Commences for Civil Servants
August 31, 2014 Starting this fall semester, SNU will offer a master's degree program in public administration tailored for civil servants of Korea and other countries. The Graduate School of Public Administration named this program the 'Global Master of Public Administration (GMPA)' and announced that all major courses will be taught in English. Students will take courses at SNU and a foreign university for a year each and receive diplomas from both SNU and the foreign university. Currently, six schools, including Rutgers University and the University of Indiana, are participating in this program. This semester, thirteen Korean civil servants and nineteen foreign civil servants are enrolled in the program, the latter group consisting of scholarship students selected by KOICA. Professor KWON Huck-ju commented that this program will replace, in part, civil servant overseas studies, the efficiency of which has been debated in the past. more

SNU Ranks First in Industry-University Cooperation Revenues
September 2, 2014 SNU's industry-university cooperation revenues from March 2013 to February 2014 were recorded as amounting to 622.2 billion Korean won, the largest amount among all Korean universities. Yonsei University and Korea University earned 372.6 billion KRW and 226.8 KRW, respectively. Industry-university cooperation revenue consists of money earned by doing research for corporations, selling patents and technology owned by the University and contracting government projects. While 183 universities raised a total of 5,454,500,000,000 KRW, most universities showed heavy reliance on governmental support while only an average of 17.9 percent of revenues were earned independent of such support. SNU earned 113.9 billion KRW (18.4 percent) through independent means, which is a surge of 256 percent from last year. SNU explained this as the result of new technology agreements with construction and pharmaceutical companies. more
