Meet with Minerva School CEO Ben Nelson
KINGS President Ahn Nam-sung met with Ben Nelson, founder and CEO of Minerva School, in Seoul on July 1, along with Prof. Namgung-Ihn(Dean of Academic Affairs), and Prof. Aya(Head of NPP Department).
The meeting took place when Minerva School CEO Ben Nelson visited Korea, where he was unable to meet during President Ahn visit to San Francisco on April.
At this meeting, both parties agreed that KINGS would participate in the Demo Class using the Minerva system in September, and promised to continue to cooperate on mutual interests.
Minerva School is a future innovative university that runs the entire curriculum online without a campus. And it is widely known as a harder university to enter than Harvard University.
On the other hand, KINGS intends to strengthen actual win-win cooperation with domestic and overseas related organizations for future-oriented curriculum including digital technology in the fourth industrial revolution era.

WORLD'S BEST OPERATION PERFORMANCE
Through steady technology development of nuclear power in Korea over the last 50 years, the nuclear group of Korea Electric Power Corporation (EEPCO, the sole utility company of Korea) has achieved the world's best operation performance.
The KEPCO nuclear group has combined ther forces to provide quality education with their vast experience and knowledge to make a contribution to human properity though nuclear power electricity by producing practical leadership-level professionals.
