한국의 경영학 교육을 이끈 110년
2015년 을미년은 고려대학교의 개교와 함께 그 역사를 이어온 경영대학이 110주년을 맞는 해다. 110주년을 맞아 이재학과로 시작한 경영대가 경제학과, 상업과, 상과 등의 이름을 거치며 처음 설립부터 현재의 자리까지 올라간 과정을 살펴봤다.   한국 경영학의 시작 1905년 보성전문학교가 개교와 동시에 설치하려던 5개학과 가운데 법률학전문과 이외의 4개학과(이재학전문과, 농업학전문과, 상업학전문과, 공업학전문과)는 모두 정원이 미달됐다. 이때 신해영 초대교장은 이재학전문과로 지원자를 몰아 개강했다. 신해영 초대교장은 이용익이 전문학교 설립을 구상하고 추진할 당시 대한제국의 학부 편집국장으로 있으면서 학교 체계 및 학과 등을 일임 받았다. 신해영 초대교장은 대한제국 관리로 재임하던 중 1895-1896년 일본의 게이오 의숙에 관비 유학생으로 파견되어 공부했다. 당시 게이오 의숙이 문학, 이재, 법학의 3과로 구성된 대학부를 개설하고 있어 보성전문학교에도 이재학과를 설치한 것으로 보인다. 2년제 이재학전문과는 총 40과목으로 편성되어 있고 경제학 14과목, 상업학 11과목(은행실무, 상업부기학, 은행부기학, 관청부기학, 국제무역론, 외국환표 요해, 은행회사상점 관리법 산술 4과목), 법률학 1과목, 교양 4과목으로 구성됐다. 이렇듯 당시 이재학전문과는 상학, 경제학 및 법률학의 집합학과였다. 이재학전문과에 법률학이 포함된 것은 설립초기부터 보성전문학교에서는 법률학 전문과가 이었고 이재학전문과와 서로 과목을 교환하여 강의함으로서 법률 또는 법상계 학생들에게 부전공 효과를 기대할 수 있었다.       (사진)1918-1922 낙원동 교사   수난의 일제강점기 이후 1922년 이전까지 이재학과는 경제학과, 상업과의 명칭을 거쳐 상과로 개칭됐다. 그 이전의 상업학은 그 연구대상이 상점이나 점포의 판매관리였는데, 제1차 대전 후 자본주의 경제의 발전과 생산의 기계화 및 자동화, 대규모 공장의 설립과 운영이 활성화됨에 따라 미국, 독일, 일본에서는 경영학이 보급됐다. 이에 따라 당시의 학교 당국도 상업학을 경영학의 전신으로서 상학으로 확대 개편했다.  태평양 전쟁의 막바지, 1944년 3월 조선총독부는 민간사립학교의 교명을 바꾸도록 강요해 보성전문학교는 경성척식경제전문학교로, 상학과는 경제과로 명칭이 바뀌었다. 일본이 태평양 전쟁에서 과학이나 기술면에서 미국과 비교하여 열세에 놓이자 법과와 같은 문과계통의 교육을 폐지하고 이공계 및 실업계 위주의 전시적 교육동원을 하려는 것이었다. 학교 당국은 재학생만이라도 상과 법과 그대로 졸업시켜줄 것을 건의했으나 거부하고 새 학기인 1944년 4월부터 시행하도록 했다. 그 해 입학시험에서 경제과 이름으로 76명이 선발됐지만 수업이 제대로 되지 않았고 2학년과 3학년 학생들은 징병으로 동원되거나 이외의 학생들은 부평소재 조병창과 구청 등 관공서에 가서 일을 했다. 이후 해방까지는 실제 강의가 이뤄지지 못했다.    경영대학의 이름을 갖다 해방과 동시에 본교는 보성전문학교로 환원할 수 있었고, 1946년에 국가의 교육제도에 따라 4년제 대학의 모습을 갖춰 ‘고려대학교’로 재설립됐다. 당시 3개의 단과대(정법대, 경상대, 문과대)만이 있었고, 경상대학은 다시 상업학과와 경제학과로 나뉘었다. 하지만 8·15 이후의 사회적 정치적 혼란과 6·25전쟁은 대학이 교육과 연구의 내실을 갖출만한 기회를 주지 않았고 또한 시간적으로도 그럴 여유가 없었다. 전란 중 약 1년간 교환교수로 미국에 가 있던 총장 유진오는 미국의 각 명문대학은 물론 귀로에 유럽까지 순방하면서 선진대학의 제도와 조직을 세밀히 시찰하였고 귀국 후 제일 먼저 착수한 것은 대학으로서 새로운 학풍을 쇄신하는 일이었다. 개교 50주년을 맞이하며 이 작업을 본격화했는데, 제일 먼저 시작한 것이 대학기구의 확장과 제도면에서의 개혁이었다. 그 과정에서 경상대학은 상과대학으로 개칭하고 경제학과를 상학과와 분리하는 대신 그 자리에 신설 경영학과를 뒀다. 회계학과 상업학의 원로 김순식 교수와 김효록 교수의 주도로 상과대학이 기존의 상학과와 신설된 경영학과 중심으로 재개편 될 수 있었다.   1954년부터 경영학과 개설준비를 했는데, 상학과 조교수로 부임한 정수영과 독일 경영학에 관심이 많았던 전임강사 윤병욱이 경영학과 빠른 개설준비를 도왔다. 사회적 영향으로는 6·25전쟁 이후 휴전으로 끝나고 전후복구와 향후 경제재건 및 경제개발 정책이 불가피했던 측면도 있었다. 공기업과 민간기업이 그 기능을 주도해야 하기에 선진 경영학을 도입 인재양성을 통한 기업경영의 능률화와 합리화가  필요했다. 본교는 연세대와는 달리 경영대학 개설이 미국의 기술 및 원조지원이 계획되기 전 이뤄졌기 때문에 경영학의 특성이 미국의 일방적인 영향만 받은 것이 아니라 독일 경영학 도입으로 양자가 혼성된 특징을 보였다.    군사정부 민주화운동 속 경영대학 1960년대 10여 년간은 4.19이후 연일 학생시위로 전반기는 5.16 군사 쿠데타, 한미 행정협정 체결 촉구데모, 6.3사태와 한일회담 반대, 무장군인 본교 진입, 6.8부정선거 규탄 등으로 학내는 어수선한 분위기의 연속이었다. 따라서 이 기간 동안은 학제 개혁이나 대학발전을 위한 구체적인 구상을 갖고 있지 못했다. 1970년 10월 김상협 총장의 취임으로 고려대학교는 발전계획위원회를 조직하고 장기발전계획안을 수립하였다. 이 계획에 의하면 1단계 졸업학점 감축 조정, 부전공제 실시, 계열별 모집, 능력별 학점취득제 실시, 계절학기 운영, 2단계 졸업학점 140학점에 의한 교육과정 재개편, 계열모집 화대, 부전공 의무화 및 복수전공 실시, 입학시험제도 개선, 전임교원 충원, 3단계 교과과정 재조정, 학교 행정기구 재편성 등이 그 주된 내용이었다. 이후 경영대학 내부에서 학과와 연구소 신설 통합이 이뤄졌다.  (사진)1960.4.19 혁명의 도화선이 된 4.18 의거   글로벌 시대를 준비하다 문민정부가 들어서고 나서 얼마 있지 않아 우리나라는 점차 세계화의 바람이 부는 것을 느낄 수 있었다. 이에 경영대학은 본격적인 글로벌 시대를 준비하는 과정을 차차 준비한다. 교과과정 개편, 신임교수 대거채용, 새로운 학풍의 조성이 그것이다. 경영대학의 교과개편은 1992년 외국어 교육 강화와 더불어 기업영어실습과 기업영어 랩이 신설되었다. 1995년에는 전공과 관련된 과목으로서 계열교양과목을 두었다. 그 취지는 전공과목과 관련된 기초지식과 이해를 폭넓게 심화시키기 위한 의도에서 설정된 교양교육의 영역이다.  1981년 정부의 입학정원 증원정책의 발표에 의해 전국의 대학에서 시설확충과 신임교수 확보에 전력을 투입한 이래로 경영대학은 신임교수를 매 학기 대거 채용하는 추세를 보였다. 교수 채용은 철저한 능력위주의 선발이었으며, 출신대학은 고려의 대상이 아니었다. 1980년대 이후 최근 20여년은 경영학의 각 분야별로 많은 교수가 채용되는 과정에서 고려대 경영학은  새로운 학풍과 동향을 갖게 됐다. 현재는 대학원 석사 및 박사과정의 활성화로 각 교수들의 세부전공 및 관심분야가 매우 다양화되고 있다.    세계무대로의 발돋움 2000년대에 들어 경영대학은 이어서 계속해 교육적, 인프라적 발전을 이뤄왔다. 그로 인해 2014년 기준 연구역량 세계 89위(국내1위), 영어강의 비율·외국인 학생 수·파견 교환학생 수·장학금 수혜율 전반에서 국내 최고 수준에 다다르며 최상의 교육환경을 제공하기 위한 노력을 이어가고 있다. 뿐만 아니라 세계적으로도 우수한 교육기관으로서의 면모를 인증해 보였다. 2005년과 2007년 AACSB(미국 경영교육인증)과 EQUIS(유럽 경영교육인증)의 최초인증을 받았다. AACSB의 경우 2010년 국내 최초로 재인증 받은 것에 이어 작년 12월, 2회 연속 AACSB 재인증에 성공했다. EQUIS 또한 2010년 국내 최초 재인증을 받았으며, 재인증 심사를 진행하고 있다.   (사진) 2013 현대자동차경영관 준공 경영대학의 성과는 이뿐만 아니다. 영국 Financial Times가 선정하는 ‘세계 100대 Executive MBA’ 순위에서 최근 3년 평균세계 21위, 국내 1위를 기록하고 있다. 또한, 경영대학은 미국 텍사스대(University of Texas at Dallas, UTD)가 매년 발표하는 ‘세계 경영대학 연구 성과’에서 2014년 세계 89위, 국내 1위를 기록했다. UTD 평가는 경영학 분야 24개 세계 최우수 학술지에 게재한 논문 수를 집계해 경영대학 교수진의 연구 역량을 평가하는 권위 있는 지표다. 경영대학은 이 평가에서 2011년부터 세계 100위권에 진입한 국내 유일 경영대학이다. 현재 경영대학은 2030년까지 Global Top30, Asia No.1 비즈니스스쿨 도약이라는 목표를 가지고 있다. ‘World-Class Knowledge Hub in Business’라는 비전 아래 글로벌 스탠더드에 맞춘 경영대학이 되는데 만전을 기하고 있다.

Korea University ranked the First in the employment rate among business schools of private universities
Korea University ranked the First in the employment rate among business schools of private universities   According to the government's official announcement of employment rate of each university, Korea University Business School (Dean Dong-one Kim) ranked the first in the employment rate among business schools of private universities. Korea University Business School scored 85.5% in the employment rate, which is much higher than that of Yonsei University (77.5%) and Sungkyunkwan University (76.7%). This is the result of the survey conducted by the Ministry of Education, asking the university students graduating from February 2014 to August 2013. Dean of KUBS Dong-One Kim commented, "The factor of high employment rate is that students who graduated from KUBS possess the courtesy and good personality that domestic companies require. Our Business School takes 'Business for Society' as a top priority in education." The Hankyung Business Weekly's 'National Business School Evaluation' targeting human resources managers in top 200 companies shows that KUBS has ranked the first in the areas of organization adaptability, sincerity and responsibility for seven consecutive years.   Korea University Business School offers a variety of career development services that enable students to explore career paths that truly suit them by running its own Career Development Center(KUBS CDC). The notable examples include 'Alumni Mentoring' through which students can get practical advice from alumni working in the field that students are interested in, 'Career discovery' which provides opportunities to explore possible careers, and 'New Venture Competition' where students preparing for start-ups can meet and get mentoring from alumni entrepreneurs.  Meanwhile, the employment rate of the entire Korea University graduates was 69.3%, much higher than that of Seoul National University (61%), Yonsei University (64.1%), and Sungkyunkwan University (66.5%). Within Korea University, there are 6 departments with the employment rate above 90%: School of Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering (100%), School of Mechanical Engineering (90%), School of Industrial Management Engineering, Department of Spanish Language and Literature (94.3%), Department of Computer Education (92.9%), and College of Medicine (98.3%).

'Mentoring Program with Professors' held successfully for 2015 Spring semester
'Mentoring Program with Professors' held successfully for 2015 Spring semester    'Mentoring Program with Professors' for 2015 Spring semester was held for 3 days, on April 6th, 9th and 10th at Ahn Young Il Hall and KooKoo Seminar Room of LG-POSCO Hall. In total, 63 professors and 626 students participated in this event. 'Mentoring Program with Professors', a part of KUBS Mentoring System, was designed to close the distance between professors and students and to help students get advice on their studies and future careers. KUBS first introduced the Mentoring System in 2007 and started the Mentorship program with professors since 2011. Professor Weon Sang Yoo, one of the mentors at this event said, “Thanks to this mentoring program like the homeroom teacher system of the university, I could offer a career guidance to students. I often ask them what they want to be and why they chose business administration as their major, and also encourage them to apply for the student exchange program.” Lee Hyun Jung (Business Administration '13) said, “Students usually feel distance from professors, so it is difficult for us to meet them outside of class. This mentoring program which acts as a bridge between professors and students was very helpful and relieving as I could get more intimate advice from professors.” Professors of KUBS also added that students are always welcome to their offices. Professor Kwan Hee Yoo mentioned, “After this event, I could notice that students have a lot of things they want to ask us. I would love to meet them more often to share thoughts and concerns with them whenever they are in need of me." In addition, Professor Kim, Joonghyuk mentioned that "I could meet many students and deeply interact with them through this event. If students want to ask for advice, they are always welcome."

​The relationship between corporate diversification and corporate social performance
​The relationship between corporate diversification and corporate social performance
Prof. Jingoo Kang Does diversification affect firm response to stakeholder demands and social issues? Despite extensive interest in corporate diversification in the strategy literature, the relationship between diversification and corporate social performance (CSP) remains largely unexplored. Both product and geographic diversification increase the range of stakeholder demands and social issues that firms face. In addition, according to findings of the diversification and stakeholder management literature, diversified firms have several reasons to respond to increasing stakeholder demands and social issues. Based on these observations, I propose that the level of diversification will be positively related to the CSP of firms. However, when diversified firms have a strong focus on short-term profit, it may discourage firm response to stakeholder demands and investment in social issues, thereby negatively moderating the positive relationship between the level of diversification and CSP. The sample for this study starts from 1,000 of the largest US firms i n term s of market capitalization. I chose large firms for my sample because these firms are more likely to pursue diversification, both product-wise and geographically, The social performance data for sample firms were collected from the Kinder, Lydenberg, Domini (KLD) Social Ratings database, which is a popular source of CSP measure in academic research. To construct other explanatory and control variables, I collected financial data from Compustat’s North America database and Compustat’ s Executive Compensation (Execucomp) database. Since the Execucomp database provides data from 1993 to 2006, the sample period is limites, accordingly. After the three databases were matched, the effective sample size was reduced to 511 firms. The effective sample size in the analysis was 3,044 observations. Empirical testing shows that the levels of unrelated and international diversification have a positive relationship with CSP, and that strong short-term profitability of diversified firms partially and negatively moderates the positive relationship between the level of diversification and CSP.

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

[KUBS 외국인 교환학생 수기] Lots of birds with just one stone
Lots of birds with just one stone - Studying abroad at KUBS - Studying abroad at Korea University Business School is arguably the best decision I’ve made while completing my degree. KUBS has created a first-class academic program that is built upon the school’s engaging faculty, accommodating facilities, and extensive print and electronic resources. Outside of classes, exchange and international students can join a variety of clubs and organizations. KUBS Buddy is a social club specifically designed to connect foreign business students with their Korean counterparts. They host official events each month, but there are also plenty of opportunities for unofficial get-togethers. KUBS embraces the global mindset that Korea University as a whole advocates. All study abroad programs give you a chance to experience life in another country, but KUBS stands above the rest by making foreign students feel that they are truly an important part of the university community. Coming from a top American business school, I can say with confidence that the professors at Korea University are some of the best around. During my semester at KUBS, I had the privilege of taking an International Business course taught by Professor Jungbien Moon. The class revolved around student presentations, which encouraged interaction and discussion among students, leading to a much more valuable learning experience. Out of the dozens of professors I’ve had at university, Professor Moon ranks among the very best. Along with being incredibly well-versed in his area of expertise, he was an effective and engaging teacher. All of my professors at KUBS placed a heavy emphasis on teamwork and discussion which was a refreshing change of pace from the monotonous lecturing that undermines too many undergraduate programs. To assist in getting the best possible experience academically, KUBS has recently constructed two additional facilities: LG-POSCO and Hyundai Motor Hall. Together, they house most of the classrooms and study areas available to business school students. Whether you are looking for a quiet nook to read in or a comfortable lounge to talk with classmates, there are plenty of options from which to choose. In particular, Hyundai Motor Hall has dozens of spacious breakout rooms with monitors and white boards for group presentations and collaboration. The business library, located in LG-POSCO, is the quietest place to study, with access to textbooks and business publications, both print and electronic. It was also my number one stop each morning for a free copy of the Wall Street Journal so that I could keep up to date on global events. I shouldn’t forget to mention that both buildings are not only functional, but absolutely beautiful as well. It makes studying for finals a little less stressful when you can sit back and appreciate your surroundings. While studying is always necessary at university, when you’re abroad cultural exchange is just as important, if not more so. In the end, these programs are designed to foster connections between people from different countries, and it would be a shame to not take advantage of these opportunities. As I mentioned earlier, KUBS Buddy was created to give you chances to build friendships with Korean students, and KU in general has its own buddy program that operates in similar fashion. There are also clubs for activities ranging from dance, to hiking, to a variety of sports. I was part of the archery club during my semester at KU, and it was an awesome way to meet with students who weren’t directly involved in the international program. If I could offer one piece of advice, it’s to do whatever you can to break out of your comfort zone and meet Koreans and people from countries besides your own! Studying abroad is a once in lifetime opportunity, and you would be hard pressed to find a better host university than Korea University.  Evan Kollath Tulane University Class of 2015 Exchange Student at KUBS in Spring 2014
