There is no doubt that COVID-19 poses a significant challenge to universities. However, this can serve as a unique opportunity to reflect on the function and mission of university education. The pandemic means that universities must conduct various experiments in online and blended learning, although it may transpire that such experiments are not successful. If universities do not capitalize on the opportunity to identify a new path to the education of the future, they are likely to fall behind other universities in Korea and elsewhere. This is another way of saying that the universities that push such an agenda forward will a gain competitive edge in the global higher education market. No one is sure of the right way forward because we are living in an unprecedented time, but we do know for certain that changes are unavoidable. What is required now is imagination and a proactive commitment to make these changes.
