Second, in the outcome of the survey conducted in South Korea, all four key factors were strongly related to customer satisfaction level, whereas the survey conducted in the USA, only two key factors showed relation to the customer satisfaction level which were facility and online service. Lastly, In the survey conducted in South Korea, out of the four key factors, Faculty(${\beta}$=.838) and online service(${\beta}$=.496) were the only two key factors that influenced the customer satisfaction level. In the survey conducted in the USA, Facility(${\beta}$=.441) and online service(${\beta}$=.471) were the two key factors that influenced customer satisfaction level. Therefore, South Korea should invest in increasing online service and educating faculty service as well as managing more intensively in software type field policies.
