It has also long been Korea's window to the world. For well over a century, Yonsei has served as a principal conduit of knowledge between Korea and the rest of the world. It is this legacy that has been responsible for Yonsei's growth and stature. The same legacy will enable Yonsei to reach new heights and assume a greater role in Korea and the world in the future.
In order to pass this legacy on to the next generation, Yonsei University pursues the following strategies: First, Yonsei will further enhance its graduate-level programs and promote original research. Second, Yonsei will strengthen its interdisciplinary approach to learning to better prepare students for a world that is becoming increasingly integrated and complex. Third, Yonsei is committed to building a state-of-the-art campus where students and faculty can engage in groundbreaking innovations.
Yonsei’s faculty and students are the bearers of its commitment to produce world-class leaders. Yonsei has been taking the lead in enhancing the international quality of education and research; it is now widely recognized as one of Asia's top universities. Its 300,000 graduates are serving in leadership positions in both public and private sectors across the globe. They are key players setting new international standards in their respective fields.
The time you spend at Yonsei may be a fraction of your life, but the experience and knowledge you take from it will be assets that will last a lifetime. I invite you to join us at Yonsei to experience the unique blend of Korean and global cultures, and to become a part of the enduring "Yonsei Legacy."
