    Ever heard of the term “Seoul Model”? A total of 15 cities of the world have expressed their wish to learn from Seoul Metropolitan Government’s know-how in operating urban programs.

    This time around, MBA students from Columbia University in the United States are coming to learn from Seoul, similarly to those who have visited from the Kennedy School, Harvard, Stanford, and MIT.

    Leading universities in the United States and the United Kingdom, such as Cornell, Rutgers, Georgia, and Sheffield, are running a course for studying Seoul Metropolitan Government’s administrative services. It is all a result of the efforts made by local residents, Seoul Metropolitan Government officials, and former mayors of the city. 

    At Seoul Metropolitan Government, we have finished preparations for exporting our urban experiences. The relevant department has been upgraded to a bureau and has gone through an internal reshuffle. We intend to collaborate with private businesses for the export and to invite more foreign municipal officials to attend training programs run by us.
