Special Interview on KUBS Startup Station
KUBS Dean Dong-One Kim     The KUBS Startup Station, located on the second floor of the KUBS Main Building, is scheduled to be completed in September. At the same time, our university will shift the direction of the education from “employment-centered” to “startup-centered.” Investment in startup is extremely significant not only for the school but also for the development of the Korean economy. The government actively operates startup programs for students as well. Such attempts have played as a positive role in leading the beginning of the “startup business” fad. However, I believe that education provided by universities can present a greater vision in terms of setting the groundwork for long-running startups in Korea because university is a place where culture change can be created gradually.   Once the construction of the KUBS Startup Station is completed, we plan to support students wishing to start their own business in various ways. KUBS will provide an office space where students can work in a pleasant working environment, and also proceed angel investments which is fund capital for an early-stage startup.   Moreover, startup education will be offered. For instance, KUBS will invite alumni who are engaged in industry and guests with various startup experiences to hold special lectures. This not only enables our students to acquire academic theories of startup, but also have an opportunity to develop business perspectives and dream bigger.   When formulating a plan to build a startup support center, we have benchmarked Stanford University and Babson College. In fact, some universities in the United States fund 300 dollars to students who matriculate the school and encourage them to start a business. Even if the students suffered failure in business, the universities give them another chance. Through this, students can launched their businesses approximately four or five times and experience practical startup business in depth. This indeed allows students to learn startup business most vividly.   Our school’s educational method will be changed. We plan to cooperate with other universities and utilize a wide range of networks. I wish our students can draw their ambitious future at the KUBS Startup Station.   Management Committee for KUBS Startup Station       (Left) Prof. Hicheon Kim, Prof. Dae Il Nam, Prof. Ho-Won Jung, and Research Prof. Doyoon Kim   Korea University Business School will launch the “KUBS Startup Station.” The KUBS Startup Station is an “innovation platform” that produce creative entrepreneurs. We believe that KUBS, which has been leading the study of the Business Administration in Korea for the past 110 years, can present a greater vision with the KUBS Startup Station. The KUBS Startup Station will impress our students as well as allowing prospective entrepreneurs to fulfill their ambitions. Such support is even more meaningful because the donations were made by KUBS alumni to nurture current students. In addition, we would like to extend our deepest gratitude to professors and alumni for supporting the KUBS Startup Station. The KUBS Startup Station will be divided into two sections: “Seung Myung Ho Entrepreneurship Education Center,” and “Iljin Startup Incubation Center.” Each center will offer systematic startup education and support to pursue its mission. The Iljin Startup Incubation Center enables students to collaborate with external organizations, such as an entrepreneur, industrial expert, venture capitalist, to develop their startup business and also to receive advice and support from mentors with various experiences. The Seung Myung Ho Entrepreneurship Education Center provides startup education and mentoring services. Students moving into the center can receive professional startup education. In addition, the Startup Lecture Series will be held regularly by inviting experts.   KUBS will spare no effort to produce entrepreneurs who perform internationally. The KUBS Startup Station offers the best experience and opportunity to KU students, graduates, as well as students from other universities. We hope that many of you will experience the vision of the KUBS.   ⁎The above interview has been reframed based on the conversation with Management Committee for KUBS Startup Station.

Alumni Interview: Iljin Group CEO Sang Il Lee (Commerce, ’57)
KUBS Alumni Interview — Sang Il Lee (Commerce, ’57), Chairman of Iljin Group “One with professionalism and positive attitude can succeed” Q: Iljin Group is leading the field of wheel bearing with its innovative technologies. Tell us about the company’s vision and your business philosophy as Iljin Group reaches out to the world beyond Korea. The three core values for Iljin Group’s corporate culture are “creative spirit,” “teamwork,” and “make it happen.” With that being said, our company supports all employees, so they can collaborate to achieve goals based on their insights. A company can stay in business with its results and profits. In order to bear fruits in management, the company shall ensure its competiveness in the market by producing excellent goods in various aspects, such as technology, quality, price, etc.   Iljin Group is leading the world’s wheel bearing market with the global market share of 30%. Our major clients are world-class automobile companies, including Hyundai Motor Company, Kia Motors, BMW, Ford, Renault, VW, PSA, FIAT, Mercedes-Benz, Chrysler, GM, TESLA (manufactures electric vehicles), etc.   Since the initial stage of Iljin Group, I had a goal and confidence to produce goods with global competiveness, rather solely focusing on the domestic market. I believed that providing excellent products at the lowest cost would lead our company on the path to success in the global market. Because wheel bearing is an essential part of an automobile, it is important to guarantee its best quality with securing the stability. I must say it was not easy to penetrate the market due its high price and quality; however, under the company’s management philosophy “make it happen,” I did not give up. With a sense of duty, I constantly invested in research in order to be recognized as the most important quality.   Iljin Group currently has research facilities in the United States and Germany. Professional technicians in Korea and overseas cooperate together to enhance the cost competiveness by increasing the automation rate using robots, sensors, and computers. The Quality Assurance Team is responsible for product manufacturing and delivery, while satisfying customer needs. Q: Many students are trying to start their own business nowadays. You have made a meaningful donation for the KUBS Support for Business Start-Ups. KUBS, my alma mater, has been recognized as the best in Korea according to various performance indexes in Korea and abroad. And now KUBS is making progress to be recognized by the world beyond Korea. I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of my alma mater.   Until the development of KUBS with its 110-year history, there have been numerous deans of KUBS, professors, including former KU President Yoon-dae Euh, who have played a major role. With these professors, KUBS produced talented individuals leading Korea. Also, because of our alumni’s love for KUBS juniors, students have access to study in the superior educational facilities.   A number of world’s distinguished universities strive to improve their start-up education. As I, too, was able to advance into the global market by starting my own business, I believe that start-up education is necessary in order to change the economic paradigm of Korea. I decided to donate the funds to develop my alma mater in a successful direction and to support our students become entrepreneurs who demonstrate their abilities to lead Korean economy. I hope KUBS Start-Up Center, which will be completed in September, will foster entrepreneurs with integrated thinking. I am confident that students will have more chances of success by challenging themselves, rather than being afraid of failure.     Q. What are some virtues that students desiring to start their own business shall improve during their studies? Please give words of advice to KUBS students. I would like to emphasize two virtues: “professionalism” and “positive attitude.” First of all, it is imperative to build your own professionalism. Developing professionalism with insights will help students become global leaders fitting the trend. Once students have made a decision on their business item, they should aim high to become the best in the world. In addition, they should think on their feet to be one step ahead in the market.   Positive attitude is also extremely important. One who only has knowledge cannot become a great leader. Nothing can be accomplished alone. You should endeavor to earn the respect and recognition from your co-workers while working together. One with positive attitude can win the hearts of clients. If you always behave modest and humble, you can become a wise entrepreneur. I will always support our KUBS students on their journey of becoming a great entrepreneur with a warm heart who thinks carefully but act boldly.

[2015 MBA Graduate Student Interview] The top graduate of FMBA, Young Jin Kim
Q. Congratulations on being the top graduate of FMBA program I would like to thank professors, staff members, FMBA graduates, other colleagues, and my family who have constantly supported me to achieve this excellent result. The FMBA program has not only built my long-term career plan, but also has given me an opportunity to improve myself throughout the past year. Q. What are your keys to success of becoming the top graduate of FMBA? My proactive attitudes produced such great outcomes. I tried my best to lead the team while performing the numbers of case studies and team projects. In addition, participating classes enthusiastically by reading lecture materials and organizing the list of questions beforehand is another key to receive positive evaluation. For those who are non-business majors, I highly emphasize that it is critical to prepare and review the notes from the previous lecture before class starts. Q. What do you remember the most during your FMBA? I remember vividly every moment of my FMBA journey. If I had to choose one, I would say “International Residence Program.” Studying at the National University of Singapore and Wharton School was extremely new and exciting. Also, I was able to cultivate the business acumen by visiting financial institutions in Hong Kong and New York. Lastly, I cannot forget the memories of my warm-hearted colleagues who helped me when I was injured during IRP. Q. What have you gained after completing one-year course of FMBA? I am currently in the hiring process and have a good feeling about it. Knowledge that I have gained from FMBA program has allowed me to view the entire financial market, as well as thinking globally. In addition, I am confident that students and alumni of Korea University will have access of professional networks and become an asset in the financial sector. Q. Do you have any advice for upcoming FMBA students? Set two or three goals for each module and devote your full attention to the studies. You will find yourself growing after a year. At the same time, I encourage students to participate actively in various events, such as MT, Ko-Yon games, athletic meetings, CDC program and cherish those moments while building your professional networks of MBA colleagues. A year is much shorter than you think. Do your best without regrets. I wish you a good luck in achieving your ultimate goals and success.

[2015 MBA Graduate Student Interview] The top of graduate of GMBA, Vincent Lee
Q. Tell us your impression of being named as the top graduate of GMBA program. Professor Se-Joon Hong told us at the very beginning that there is a reward for the top graduate of GMBA and consequently, I worked very hard to achieve it. There is no way however, I could have achieved this position without the help of my friends I worked with on school projects, and as such I am very grateful. Q. What did you mainly focus on to achieve this title while attending school? Our program is very intense with 8-week long courses. There are a number of assignments during those eight weeks with midterms and finals. This busy schedule keeps you constantly focused on the short-term goal of performing well. Q. Why did you choose Global MBA program 2 years ago? I chose it because of the school’s reputation as the top business school as well as the school’s strong alumni network. In addition, the program was only one year versus the standard two-year schedule in America. Q. How was your life as a student of Global MBA? I enjoyed socializing with diverse groups of people and many international as well as Korean graduate students. In addition, I tried to meet many people outside of our program. Life as a GMBA student is not an easy journey but it was very gratifying. Q. Which curriculum of Global MBA was helpful in your career? I wanted to focus on the areas where I was weaker. The most valuable classes I took were twofold. The first was Business Communication, where Professor Silvia Kozlovska helped me become much more confident in front of larger audiences. The second class was Uncertainty, Data & Decisions. Professor Byung Cho Kim made a highly analytical and data intensive class by emphasizing the valuable insights derived from the numbers. Q. Do you have any advice for your juniors who are studying at KUBS? Enjoy the program. Classes and grades are important but what’s more important are the relationships you build here and outside. I would encourage students to focus in class, work efficiently in groups, and with this efficiency, use your precious free-time well.

Until you can turn that passion into reality,  Follow your passion!
Until you can turn that passion into reality, Follow your passion!
Jennifer Pak, a recent undergraduate alumna at Korea University Business School, is a fall 2013 participant in the White House Internship Program.  Throughout her undergraduate career, she completed internships at Bank of America Merrill Lynch Investment Banking in Seoul Finance Center and at a marketing company in Los Angeles, California. While attending school,  she worked as a freelancer Reporter and VJ for KBS World and Arirang TV, and volunteered for various service projects.  Before she transferred to Korea University, in 2009, she led up to 40,000 students into cheering as the Head Female Captain of Yonsei University Cheerleading Team, AKARAKA. When she graduated from business school  in the spring of 2013, she worked as a CSI Executive for Mercedes-Benz Korea Ltd in Seoul Square Building. Q. How are you able to get the opportunity to work at the White House?  I learned about the White House Internship Program after leaving Mercedes-Benz Korea Ltd. to pursue a different career track. I have always wanted to see what it was like to be on the other side; to be working in the public sector. I had never been exposed to politics and thought the White House would be an opportunity for me to see what it was like to work in the government. The timing was right so I took the initiative to apply for this internship. Q. What did you prepare to be an intern at the White House?  The selection process is competitive, but I highly recommend that anyone with an interest in public service consider applying. However, in order to be eligible for the White House Internship Program you must be a United States citizen. The online application requires one essay, one policy memorandum, 2 letters of recommendation, a resume, and a series of short-answer questions. I was accepted and assigned to the Office of Management and Administration. Being prepared is half the battle. Just like any other job interview preparation, I wrote out a list of potential interview questions, planned out my responses ahead of time, received some feedback, and did a mock  interview.  The best way to nail any interview is to practice, practice, and practice. Of course, I could not have gone through this without my recommendations, Korea University Business School Service Marketing Professor Janghyuk Lee and Bank of America Merrill Lynch Director and Korea General Counsel James Lee.  Q. Which curriculum of KUBS was helpful?  In spring 2011, I transferred to Korea University Business School as an undergrad. Some of the courses I personally enjoyed were Service Marketing, Venture Business, Process Innovation & IT, Principals of Corporate Finance, Information Security, Advertisement Management, Business Negotiation, and Business Strategy. Although our Business School is known for its numerous hours of tedious group projects and meetings, PowerPoint presentations, and HBS article analysis, it all taught me life lessons that helped me prepare for real life interaction the real world. After graduating, I realized that public service has shaped all aspects of my life at the university, friendships, person al growth, academic learning, and cultural experiences. I learned that there are no limits to service and every project expands not only to your knowledge but your heart, because of many of the wonderful people you meet. There is  no price to place on these valuable experiences. Q. Advice for your juniors who are studying at KUBS. I had a friend who once asked me, “Jennifer, do you know what the longest distance in life is? It’s from your mind to your heart. But do you know what the most difficult path in life is? It’s from your heart to your feet.”  He’s right. It is easier to talk than to do. Start networking. Build relationships. Gain work experience. Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Don’t trap yourself. Don’t scoff at the life choice of people around you. Be genuine. Be humble and always smile. Most importantly, follow your passion until you can turn that passion into reality. -Jennifer Pak, KUBS 06
