This year’s assessment was surveyed by HR directors of the top 200 companies in 2017, mutually selected by NICE Group and Hankyung Business. The survey was carried out on 55 business schools whose number of admission-accepted students is 100 or more. The assessment was analyzed by Global Research based on nine performance categories: △Job adaptability, △Compatibility with organization, △Development potential, △Creative problem-solving skills, △Globalization system, △Diligence and responsibility, △Recruitment for new employees, and △Entrance into Graduate School.
 
Of the nine indicators, KUBS demonstrated excellence in △Job adaptability and △Diligence and responsibility. Particularly, the business school outperformed Sungkyunkwan University, which placed second in the assessment, in the job adaptability category with a margin of more than 100 points. KUBS also maintained the top position in the diligence and responsibility category.
 
Hankyung Business highly praised the efforts of the business school for having 83 professors, Korea’s largest and unbeatable faculty size, and making bold investments in its start-up institute, an independent operating platform, to nurture the next generation of leaders.
 
In the meantime, KUBS is ranked 1st in Korea and 68th worldwide in the 2018 Times Higher Education’s (THE) business and economics ranking. In the 2018 Best Global Universities Rankings for Economics and Business released by U.S. News & World Report, the business school also placed 1st in the nation and 98th in the world. KUBS is making progress while expanding beyond Korea to compete in a spirit of goodwill with prestigious universities across the globe.
 
“Korea University is driven by students’ problem-solving skills and creative education, which helps enhance capabilities that companies require,” KUBS Dean Soo Young Kwon said. “Without being complacent with our current achievement, we will do our best to build KUBS into a ‘research-oriented business school joining the Asia’s top 3 and the world’s top 50.’”
