The airport corporation selected YSB from among several competing institutions to create and implement the program based on YSB’s education and research capabilities, global reputation, curriculum composition, experience, and successful record in creating specialized programs that mesh with companies’ and industries’ specific needs.
To prepare for the era of artificial intelligence (AI) and respond to rapid changes in information technology, the GVC program aims to foster global and creative talents who will lead the innovation in future airport construction by focusing on four points: the capability to develop smart airports using IT and big data; the ability to innovate through management problem-solving projects; promotion of entrepreneurship through understanding ventures and startups; and development of extensive global competence.
