“aSSIST University is operated based on the philosophy of 4T’s (eThics, Teamwork, Technology, and sTorytelling)”, emphasized Dr. Kim.
To explain in more detail, eThics is considered the most important out of the four values. In many of the programs and lectures provided by the school, the concept of ‘eThics’ is emphasized and taught at least 5 minutes.
Plus, nowadays, let it be carrying out a project, taking a class, etc., teamwork is considered vital. It is important to collaborate with others to produce fruitful results and gain a broader perspective rather than working on something on your alone.
To add on is Technology. In line with the era of the 4th industrial revolution, AI courses that combine management and technology have been opened and operated since last year. aSSIST University has provided various MBA courses like AI strategic management, AI big data, crypto, etc. and such are popular courses beloved by many.
In 2009, in recognition of its achievements, aSSIST University became the very first Korean institution to be selected as one of the ‘Global Top 100’ graduate schools of business in the world by the The Aspen Institute, which is called the Oscars of ethics education.
