On behalf of our faculty, staff and student body, I sincerely welcome you to Seoul Cyber University, a leader in the new paradigm for 21st century education.
Many call this the century of the 'knowledge-based society'. In such a milieu, as thecreation, combination and reproduction of knowledge become more and more important, creativity and comprehensive thinking are indispensable. Inasmuch as it has become increasingly necessary to cultivate these qualities in contemporary men and women, there is no doubt that an era of ever-continuing study has come upon us.
We also acknowledge the 21st century as being 'the global era'. Therefore, Seoul Cyber University is expanding global education exchange by participating in cooperative programs with many renowned domestic and international universities.
