At the beginning, Changui Hong (KUBS13) reviewed his prior experience from KUBS exchange program, saying “KUBS exchange period is a sweet dream for students who are exhausted with busy time table in KU.

Next, staff from KUBS international department introduced a big picture of KUBS exchange program via its presentation. KUBS operates its own outbound exchange program which transfers 120~170 students abroad, to 102 universities worldwide. This year, University of Melbourne located in Australia have affiliated new partnership with KUBS and got huge interest from many students. University of Melbourne is involved in top 100 business schools in the world, and Spring 2020 will be the first semester that KUBS students go abroad for study. Furthermore, since Korea University international department (not only Business School) also has the partnership with University of Melbourne, there is an additional advantage to study abroad together with other department students in KU. Plus, Western University in Canada and University of Warwick in UK, which well-known as a commanding campus in North America and England also attracted focus from the students.
