Q. What is 「University」 Evaluation from Industry Perspective”?
＇Industrial Perspective University Evaluation＇ is simply how companies evaluate how much the university＇s curriculum reflects the demands of the industry. In order to match the competencies of college graduates and the qualitative workforce required by the industry, the head of industry departments proposes core competencies and related subjects for each field and evaluates the degree of conformity of the university curriculum. Organizations （Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry, National Federation of Businessmen, Korea International Trade Association, Small and Medium Business Federation, and Korea Business Owners Association） are jointly implemented. We are inducing universities to reflect industrial demands in their curriculum through the “university evaluation from an industry perspective,” and are laying the foundation for fostering convergent talents who will lead the era of the 4th industrial revolution.
