This program is in its first year and its management is currently being outsourced. Yeungnam University intends to take over the management of this program as it acquires more experience with it.

Nowadays, most students are sheltered and given too much tender care until they graduate from university. After graduation they go straight into the workforce.

By facing these new challenges our talent of type Y students will gain valuable practical experience.
