Dipendra Kandel Initiative
  • Technocratic Diplomacy

    The globalized reality we live in requires us to engage in active learning and adapting to change. Therefore, all our work is conducted with an international mindset and a technocratic approach. 

    In the long run, we wish to increase international cooperation and technocratic practices across the public and private sector.

Executive Education

We are not just another organization. As a leading think tank in Nepal, we believe a multidisciplinary approach and understanding is fundamental to our future generations across sectors, corporations and organizations. 


DKI is a big supporter in providing education for professional development. Founded to create innovative solutions to public issues for the betterment of society, DKI's mission remains as relevant today as ever. 


We take an unashamedly intelligent approach to executive education. We want to future generation to be leaders who shape our world, change-markers who see the power of implementing creative solutions to the country's issues, and executives who know that if you want to influence tomorrow, you need to understand today. 


We want our executive education participants to develop the critical thinking skills to generate, refine and apply new ideas - analytical tools that set them apart, and continue to define them as a leaders throughout the entirety of their professional lives. 


Our executive education projects have an international, regional, and local focus. We partner with actors in order to deliver proper courses. 


Deeply influential






"DKI participants are a community of unique national, regional and global influence. A distinguished network of change makers - individuals driven by intellectual curiosity and the desire to tackle the most complex issues of the region." -

Dipendra Kandel, Er.






        Deeply influential

Our executive education participants learn from and with some of the most influential people in the region: faculty who are at the forefront of cutting-edge thinking on public policy, and peers who are current and future global managers and leaders.

 They join a community defined by a depth of influence, excellence and success.






        Powerfully interconnected 







At DKI we understand the interconnectedness of public policy, geopolitics and socioeconomics, Abd we know that managing this interconnectedness underpins the success or failure of politics around the region.   


The interdisciplinary approach ensures that participants experience a bigger and more integrated picture since there is no public policy institute in Nepal. It delivers a holistic understanding. We want to enable our future generation to look at the bigger picture. We want to challenge participants to develop deeper and build a more unified awareness; to make all the connections and see the broader opportunities. 


It is our fundamental belief that the broader the base of the pyramid, the higher the apex. And it is our uniquely interconnected approach that develops truly rounded national, regional and global leaders.






"The world is not arranged nearly into disciplines or subject areas. Making sense of things means grasping the complex interconnectedness of public policy, geopolitics and socioeconomics. It's about broadening your understanding in order to sharpen your focus." -

Dipendra Kandel, Er.
