This study was conducted to compare global mindset competency between engineering and non-engineering college students. Participants were 100 engineering and 202 non-engineering college students. Results indicated that engineering college students showed significantly lower mean scores on foreign understanding and self-directed adaptability than non-engineering college students, whereas there were no significant differences on self-ratings of foreign language ability. Hierarchical regression analyses revealed that the incremental validity of global mindset competency factors on global competency was significant. Finally, limitations of the present study and suggestions for further studies were discussed.
