The participants of this study were 493 S-university students in the Seoul metropolitan area who attended in‘Self-directed learning’on-line subject. The collected data was analyzed through t-test and ANOVA using the SPSS 18.0 program. The results of the study showed a positive correlation between the creative personality of university students and the career core competencies, where the sub-variables of career core competencies are self-management ability, creative problem solving ability, analytical/critical thinking ability, initiative, conflict resolution and cooperation.
