About the University:
The National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) was established to realize His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s vision of advancing Thailand’s development through the establishment of an advanced educational institution to prepare people to become agents of change for national development. Although NIDA was originally established to support national development in Thailand; this objective has now been expanded to encompass regional development in countries outside of Thailand, with the aim of producing advanced degree graduates who can serve in the public, business, and nonprofit sectors. International College of NIDA was established in order to meet the urgent need for international graduate program with real international learning environment. Our interdisciplinary curriculum fosters creativity, enabling students and alumni to make important contributions to their fields. Graduates from programs that focus on single disciplines often commit errors that can be better detected by people familiar with two or more disciplines. Many intellectual, social, and practical problems require interdisciplinary approaches but enjoy greater flexibility in their research. Interdisciplinarians may help to bridge communication gaps in modern academia, thereby mobilizing enormous intellectual resources for the causes of greater social rationality and justice. By bridging fragmented disciplines, interdisciplinarians might be able to play roles in defending academic freedom.
