Furthermore, for 7 years since 2011, our athletes won a total of 50 in domestic and overseas golf tournaments, including LPGA. At the end of 2017, Ministry of Education and Korea Educational Development Institute announced that our university employment rate of 73.1% is much higher than the university average employment rate of 67.7%. In particular, 82.6% and 81.3% of the graduates in Dept. of Golf Business and Golf Course Landscape are the highest employment rate in Arts and Sports field. We are contributing greatly to the development of Korea Golf Industry.
