National Institute for Development Administration

Public university in Bangkapi, Bangkok




National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA) is a government-supported graduate institution with university status. NIDA's creation was inspired by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej's vision of advancing Thailand's development through the establishment of an advanced educational institution. Through teaching, training, research, and consulting, NIDA provides knowledge, analysis, and skills for application at the community, national, and regional levels.

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.

How does the International College of NIDA differ from others? ICO NIDA aims at being an interdisciplinary school by taking advantage of the inherent relationships among complementary subjects.

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.

NIDA and ICONIDA do not provide any accommodation information on their Web site, but they sure will help you to find one that fits you.
