    This study aims to analyze factors affecting global competency, based on the importance of activities to enhance global competency as a capability for university students to adapt to a global future convergence society. Accordingly, global capability was selected as an independent variable, intergroup contact with foreign students as a dependent variable, and integrated conflict as a mediator variable. Data was analyzed using multiple regression analysis. The results confirmed that group contact affects the global competency of university students, and that integrated conflict has a mediating effect. Therefore, it is necessary to consider these results in developing curricula for promoting global competency in universities.
