Undergraduate PAD3033 Behavioral Public Administration 3 English Yes
Behavioral Public Administration is contributing increasingly relevant insights for more effective public policy since the turn of the century. The recent awarding of the Nobel Prize for Economics Science to Richard Thaler for his work on the psychological influences on economic behavior confirms that this nascent field is worthy of study for students of governance. Special issues of major public administration journals and a steady stream of articles confirm that the subject – heretofore deemed “Behavioral Public Administration” – is relevant to today’s curriculum. While behavioral public administration has been developing its research agenda in (primarily) European and American institutions, it is beginning to spread around the globe. This course will introduce the foundations of behavioral public administration, starting with the insights of Herbert Simon. The major findings of behavioral economics, important experiments, empirically verified concepts, and applications for public policy will be reviewed. Students will have active discussion and research tasks to internalize the lessons for their respective academic tracks. The expectation is that students will be able to identify opportunities to apply behavioral public administration for policies in their own area of interest and demonstrate that learning in a comprehensive concept report assignment.

Undergraduate PAD2004 Administration and Economy 1:Microeconomics 3 Korean Yes
This course emphasizes the nature of decision-making by consumers, firms, and governments, and the effect of these decisions on the allocation of resources - land, labor and capital. A central issue is to establish the meaning of "efficiency" in resource allocation, and to understand what is necessary if the resources in the economy are to be allocated efficiently. We will investigate the conditions under which a market economy is able to secure an efficient allocation of society’s resources, and explore how the public sector has an important role to play in a market economy like ours. The role of the public sector is of central concern if private markets fail. We will study the ways in which private market failure exists, and the possible response of government to this failure.
