In an era where the Fourth Industrial Revolution is rapidly
progressing and robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are spreading throughout society, the conditions required of human resources will fundamentally change. As a result, people who have simply learned “knowledge” at university will not be able to survive. Furthermore, people who simply acquire “skills” at a vocational school will not be able to succeed.
In the coming era, the human resources who will demonstrate excellent leadership and play an active role in workplaces, companies, industries, and society will be those who have acquired the “Five Professional Abilities,” which are advanced abilities that only humans can demonstrate. 21st Century Academia has named it the “Five Stars Professional” and has developed a unique hands-on curriculum, the “Seven Steps Curriculum,” to foster this, and provides it to all students. doing.
