About our name
Kuder is the surname of Dr. Frederic Kuder (1904-2000), a pioneer in vocational guidance. His Kuder Preference Record, which dates back to 1938, was taken by more than one million people worldwide, and was one of the most-used career guidance instruments in schools and colleges from the 1950s to the millennium.
In 1999, at the age of 95, Dr. Kuder approved the transfer of his interest inventories from McGraw-Hill to National Career Assessment Services, Inc. (NCASI). NCASI soon became known for its exclusive line of career assessments bearing the name Kuder, and clients fondly referred to the organization as “The Kuder People.” The company officially took the name Kuder, Inc. in 2007.
Kuder’s world-renowned research faculty conducts and oversees ongoing and relevant research to ensure the reliability and effectiveness of our products for today’s students and adults.
