Engi G.

Master's DegreeKDI School of Public Policy and Management, South Korea



As I believe in what Stephen Covey said: "The best way you can predict your future is to create it"; I work hard to paint my own picture since I got graduated from the Faculty of Economics & Political Science – The English Section in 2003; By 2005 I had further educational studies, a double major in statistics at ISSR, Cairo University; I applied then for more extra studies in statistics by 2009 to have a preliminary masters in applied statistics at ISSR, Cairo University. Working for Ford foundation Project on education related issues since 2009, and my previous knowledge in economics had excelled my capabilities to be rewarded a model mentorship programme by Social Science Research Council "SSRC" in 2011. I worked, hereby, on a research working paper project, entitled ‘Cost-sharing Practices and Prospects of Equity in Egyptian Public Universities’. During this mentorship, I decided to look for a Master Degree in Development to resume working on the same topic in my MA Thesis. I was awarded a KOICA Scholarship at Dec. 2012, to study a master of Development Policy at KDI School of Public Policy & Management, with a 1st concentration in Development, and 2nd concentration in Public Finance & Social Policies. I received an academic excellence during my study at KDI School, I was interested in my MA Thesis to measure the impact of cost sharing policy on the quality of education in Foreign Language Instructed Programmes “FLIP”, one of the public universities in Egypt. The underlying assumption of the research is that ‘tuition fees’ as a form of user charge would contribute to increasing education quality, which will consequently shrink the transition period between work and graduation. I am looking forward to pursuing my academic study to obtain PhD degree in Development Economics generally, and Economics of Education in specific. Specialties: Research Design, Implementation and Analysis, Impact Evaluation and Quantitative Analysis.
