In late 1980, Korea was not just in an unfavorable position compared to rival Asian exporters such as Taiwan in terms of price competitiveness but also faces in a disadvantage in non-price competition with developed countries such as Japan. Acquiring a dominant market position, it is inevitable to boost up a non-price competition by procuring and cultivating talented with ability to speak fluent English and to have high international business management skills no less than technical development and quality improvement.
Under this historical background Atlas International was established, in February 1989, to help professionals and university students as a global human resource not only develop language skills but also acquire global insight. Korea, regardless of being ranked at the 10th in economic scale, based on IMD Report, its national competitiveness was not only pushed back on the priority list but also has weakened by each year. By contrast, Singapore and Hong Kong has ranked in the second and the third. Those countries use English as an official language and have been highly advanced in terms of globalization.
Especially in the field of university education, Singapore ranks the first, Hong Kong the second and Korea is the fortieth. Compared to China on rank twenty-eighth, Korea is much behind. The quality of higher education determines the nation’s competitiveness in the world market. The problem is that boosting up the quality of higher education takes time and effort. In order to speed up the globalization, International exchange of education should be more emphasized and prompt investment on study abroad programs for students and professionals would be essential. Combining unparalleled experience, comprehensive capabilities across many countries, and extensive research on various programs of the world’s most prestigious university, Atlas International collaborates with clients to help them become high-performance in each of their fields and governments
