Y-type human resources are defined as people who have initiative, humanity, sincerity and creativity and who will lead the era of the globalized and the intelligence-based society.
Now, Y-type human resources from Yeungnam University will lead 'the glocal era'.

A person who has an excellent character and a warm heart can be loved and respected. The excellent character comes from their warm heart and it's completed through daily routine and habits. Warm hearted people can learn how to love others and keep that in their daily routine. As a result, people get the increased power of networking and can develop their leadership naturally.
The second virtue of Y-type human resources is creativity

Students need a natural atmosphere to challenge and think persistently on campuses in the world. Based on initiative, students shouldn't be afraid of failing and should make the world their stage for accomplishing their dreams.
