In World’s Top 100 Executive MBA Rankings by the Financial Times, E-MBA at Korea University Graduate School of Business (Dean Soo Young Kwon) placed the top in Korea. It was the top rank for the eighth consecutive years, demonstrating the excellence of practice-based curriculum at E-MBA at Korea University Graduate School of Business.
 

It is a way higher rank than that of renowned business schools such as Columbia Business School, 40th UCLA: Anderson, 49th Cornell University: Johnson, 52nd Rice University: Jones, 79th. The top place in the world went to E-MBA jointly operated by Kellogg & HKUST Business Schools. In South Korea, E-MBA at Yonsei University placed 51st, which was the second rank followed by Korea University.
