Ewha GSIS was established in 1997 to train women to become global leaders in the fields of international trade & investment, international business, development cooperation and international relations. Since then, Ewha GSIS has been recognized as the best graduate institute of international studies in Korea by the Ministry of Education and has received major government awards and grants including the BK 21 Plus institutional grant and the World Class University research grant. Ewha GSIS professors have received research and institutional grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Bosch Foundation, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), KIEP, KOICA, Korea Foundation, National Research Foundation, and many others to make Ewha GSIS one of the best-funded programs of its kind in Korea enabling the students to continue their education with scholarships and research opportunities. Ewha GSIS also hosts the Ewha-KOICA program that trains government officials from developing countries on development and gender. Most importantly, our graduates are now working in all corners of the world in organizations such as the United Nations, UNDP, International Monetary Fund, OECD, Republic of Koreas Ministry of Foreign Affairs, KOICA, Korea Eximbank, and World Vision. In 2006, the Korean Studies joined the GSIS with two majors: Korean culture and teaching Korean as a foreign language. The Korean Studies program has grown with the global interest on Hallyu and the Korean language, and has recently helped establish an undergraduate program on Global Korean Studies.

Ewha GSIS is an institution of global excellence. Our students learn and conduct research in cutting-edge fields with empirical evidence drawn not only from Asia but other parts of the world where international academic scholarship is still lacking. Thus, Ewha GSIS graduates are sought after by government and private sector employers for double-expertise: strong global understanding and in-depth knowledge about Korea and Asia. 

Ewha GSIS is THE place for future women leaders, who aspire to change the world for sustainable development and peace. Come join us at Ewha for a better future for all of us on this planet Earth!
