OVERVIEW
OVERVIEW The Doctor of Philosophy Program in Governance and Development is a unique interdisciplinary program offered by the Graduate School of Public Administration at NIDA, which emphasizes administration, competencies and knowledge that run through all organizations, both large and small. The program is designed to improve the skills of academics, researchers, executives and professionals from public and private agencies and institutions, including educational institutions, government agencies, business and non-government organizations in order for them to better serve their organizations. The selection and training of future scholars and administrators a most serious responsibility in our society. How well these tasks are accomplished will be of great importance to the public and to all levels of government. As we move toward convergence of organizational goals within a changing social environment, contemporary administrators will be required to exercise their decision-making power in an increasingly complex and uncertain world. This program is expected to provide graduates with the requisite conceptual, analytical, and affective skills that are relevant to their goals and of significant value to society and to their workplace institution, business, or agency. contents 1 A BRIEF HISTORY NIDA’s Graduate School of Public Administration began with the Institute of Public Administration (IPA) of Thammasat University in 1955. NIDA was created as the result of international cooperation between the Royal Thai Government (RTG) and the United States government with Indiana University as the project manager. Early management of the IPA’s MPA program was closely supported by specialist/expert from Indiana University, with fifteen American faculty members taking an active part in academic activities, such as curriculum development, acquisition of library materials, staff development scholarships, teaching, research, and training. In 1966, the RTG restructured the IPA and transformed it into NIDA, an independent graduate institute. Since that time the Graduate School of Public Administration has maintained a major role in professional development activities aimed at satisfying the middle level manpower requirements of both the public and private sectors in pursuit of national development goals. Over the years the Graduate School of Public Administration has expanded to meet the growing demand for professional expertise. In addition to on-going teaching responsibilities, further academic initiatives have resulted in the creation of new education programs, such as the provincial degree programs, which are available at various campuses throughout the country, the Mini Master of Management Program (MMM),Development Administrator in Digital Era (DAD),Management Innovations in the Modern Globalized Economy for Top Executives NIDA-MAX , Advance Master Managent Program (AMM) a short-term training course available to both the public and private sectors and the Master of Public and Private Management (MPPM), first offered in 1995. The Ph.D. Program in Development Administration which began in 1984 has, since 1993, been an international doctoral program, conducted in English and available to both Thai and foreign students. INTERNATIONAL ACTIVITIES The Ph.D. Program in Governance and Development (International Program) offers international academic activities for students to broaden their horizons and to gain comparative knowledge in international Governance and Development. These include: 1. Hosting lectures and seminars given by visiting lecturers from universities abroad on a regular basis. 2. Exchange study agreements with universities in the United States, Germany, Taiwan, the Philippines, Mongolia, Bangladesh, Laos and Vietnam. Through these exchange agreements, students are encouraged to study for the duration of one semester in one of our partner universities. The Program also accepts students from the partner universities to complete studies in the Program. 3. Short visits to other countries to attend national and international conferences and seminars that deal with subjects taught by the Program and in which students have research interests.
