    DescriptionKorea is looking back on a stellar performance when it comes to schooling and education. A well-disciplined Confucian approach has resulted not only in passing on traditional Korean values from generation to generation, but has also contributed to a high level of competitiveness through an education system that nurtures a focused performance orientation.

    Korea has peak-performed at international student competitions over time, has revealed strong music and entertainment stars; up-and-coming players in golfing and gymnastics, both sports that require precision and discipline as cultivated in the Korean education system.

    Strong performance aspirations have also been carried over from the education system into the economy. Global brands have emerged with Samsung/LG and Hyundai/Kia for products, and Korea Air and Asiana Airlines in services, and also strong new emerging brands such as Jeju Air with a fresh dynamic approach to affordable aviation.
