SMI Vision

Improving key competencies to grow as a pop culture artist

SM Institute provides a differentiated education system by selecting three key competencies and artist skills that must be basic to grow as a global pop culture artist in the 21st century.

The three key competencies of SMI are; 'Creativity' to break away from the limited framework and suggest new ideas, 'Grit' to make new knowledge and skills truly mine through continuous learning without giving up, and ‘Self-directed Learning’ which recognizes the need for study rather than forced learning by the others. ‘자기 주도 학습력’⠀ 

커리큘럼 내 모든 과목과 프로젝트는 핵심 역량을 향상 수 있도록 설계되어있으며,할 수 있도록 집중적으로 지도합니다.

아티스트 역량은 특기 분야에 따라 나누어져 있습니다. 하여 집중적으로 트레이닝하며, 한 가지 전공에 제한하지 않고 여러 특기 분야를 필요에 따라 교차 수강할 수 있습니다.

Key Competencies

3 key competencies: Creativity, Grit, and Self-directed Learning



SMI가 정의하는 창의성이란 문제를 남다르게 인지하여, 더욱 새롭거나 가치 있게 만드는 능력입니다. SMI는 예술적 가치뿐만 아니라 실생활 속 문제 해결의 측면에서도 다양한 아이디어를 모아 하나의 혁신적이고 융합적인 방법을 찾을 수 있는 능력을 기르도록  돕습니다.


SMI emphasizes ‘Grit’ to be developed as one of major competencies. It helps students develop patience and passion to achieve the goals they set for themselves. SMI's co-curricular/extracurricular activities increase the commitment, passion, and resilience of assignments so that each student can unleash his or her talents.



자기 주도 학습능력이란 21세기 미래 사회를 살아가기 위한 주요 역량 중 하나입니다. SMI에서는 학생 스스로 학습 전반에 걸쳐 결정 과정과 수행 과정에 참여하고, 책임 있는 인재로 성장하도록 돕습니다.
