    • ISUS aims to educate global city and construction professionals with both professional and academic skills and knowledge. It does so by providing differentiated urban planning, finance, construction, operation, and development management courses and programs which are deemed necessary components in urban development largely based on Korea’s experience in achieving industrialization and urbanization success in a very short period of time.

      It offers the MUAP (Master of Urban Administration Program) which is designed for passing on our experiences to partner countries and also contributing to international urban development. In so doing it facilitates networking between domestic and foreign professionals in both the public and the private sectors through, for example, putting up joint courses and other special programs. This year, twenty public officials from fourteen countries have attended the MUAP.

      Master of Urban and Regional Development (MURD) is the second Master’s program offered by the ISUS in close partnership with the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). MURD is devised for the government officials from KOICA’s partner countries. This program aims to develop participants’ faculty of embracing a wide range of urban and regional development plans and enhance participants’ breadth of knowledge and experiences in the various fields of urban and regional development and territorial development including land use planning, real estate and housing development, urban redevelopment, new town development, infrastructure development etc. Furthermore, the program seeks to strengthen participants' understanding in Korea’s development experiences and enable participants to contribute to sustainable development in their respective countries with the knowledge acquired in Korea.

      The third postgraduate program ISUS has launched more lately is Masters’ Program for Global Leaders in Environmental Policy (MGLEP). This initiative was a response to the demand of the partner countries for a longer-term training program that can help to improve their capacity for developing environmental policies and for leading sustainable development and environmental management in their home countries, which was one of the key findings from the International Cooperation Network held by the Ministry of Environment of Korea. MGLEP program is highly expected to contribute to meeting those demands and will give participants an opportunity to acquire academic knowledge and advance their professional skills either in Environmental Policy and Management (EPM) or Sustainable Development and Planning (SDP) through a focused training while experiencing the development history as well as the life and culture of Korea.
