The IPP Extended Training is a company-based, long term system that allows the learning of selective university curriculum in a working environment for long periods of time (4 to 6 months). It is also an Industry-University Cooperative Program initiated by the Ministry of Employment and Labor that resolved the drawbacks of the existing short-term training program.
Sookmyung has been running the 2015 IPP-type Work-based Learning Business for 5 years since its election as the first women’s university to do so, and a total of 713 students have went through Extended Training in 362 companies.
