Dean’s Message
Dean, Hong-Won Suh Greetings,

Yonsei University has successfully fostered a new international human resource within Korea’s higher education environment, by creating an entirely new department. Yonsei’s Global Leadership Division has constructed a system for international and overseas Korean students who may not be fully familiar with Korean culture, to be able to adapt quickly to new policies and a new educational environment. With this, we commit ourselves to strengthening our students’ competitive skill globally.

GLD students are able to study mainly ‘Korean Culture’, ‘International Commerce’, or ‘Korean Culture and Commerce’; creating a converged education of both Korea and other countries. Aside from this, students are provided with the opportunity to take on a ‘Self-designed major’ which is similar to a minor, or instead a double major. Within Yonsei’s Global Leadership Division, students are not only able to grow academically, but humanitarianly as well, through the education and guidance system that includes students’ GLD Faculties, Academic Advisors, and Residential Masters that give the utmost support to each student.

We look forward to receiving even more interested applicants that will join us in continuing to make the global history of Yonsei University.
