The Ajou GSIS International Symposium, held annually, provides the bright minds of today, from diverse backgrounds, with an opportunity to present and exchange ideas about current issues. The Symposium not only facilitates the sharing of ideas, but also provides unique opportunities for open discussions. Recognizing that each student’s views are unique as a result of his or her culture, religion, language, and economic and political background, Ajou GSIS values diversity and believes that it is essential to developing a wide range of perspectives. Special Lectures are also provided at Ajou GSIS. Ajou GSIS invites distinguished guests and alumni to speak with current students and to provide them with maximum exposure to practical knowledge. Engaging in thought-provoking lectures encourages students to explore different career paths and positively influences their academic performances.
