Choi Yoon-Joon (Admitted '17, KUBS) Wins the Top Prize in the Real Estate 114 Big Data Contest
Choi Yoon-Joon (Admitted '17, KUBS) Wins the Top Prize in the Real Estate 114 Big Data Contest   Choi Yoon-Joon (Admitted '17, KUBS) won the top prize in the "Big Data Contest" hosted by Real Estate 114 on the occasion of its 20th anniversary. A contest for undergraduates and graduates nationwide, a total of 199 teams applied, and 54 of them submitted their projects, with one team winning the grand prize, one team winning the top prize, and three teams for excellence. The main competition and awards ceremony was held on May 29th at the Pangyo Startup Campus in Seongnam, Gyeonggi Province.   Winner's Interview   최우수상 수상의 최윤준(경영17) 학우 1. You've presented on the topic of "Real Estate Price Trend Forecasting Model Using Machine Learning." Could you please elaborate on your topic? We've created a model that can literally predict the trend of real estate prices by using machine learning. By combining REPS 3.0, a data platform that was provided by Real Estate 114, with the macroeconomic indicators provided by the National Statistical Portal or the Bank of Korea's Economic Statistics System, we predicted the trend of real estate prices in almost every region, including Seoul, Gyeonggi, Incheon, Busan, North Gyeongsang, South Gyeongsang, and Jeju. Machine learning techniques such as Support Vector Machine, Linear Discriminal Analysis, Random Forest, and Artificial Neural Network were used as predictive methods. To give you a specific description of the method we used, we first divided the price change rate data that we wanted to predict into three classes: sUp, Up, and Down. Next, through a graph analysis, we determined whether each column (LTV, DTI, consumer price inflation, turnover, supply, etc.) and class was correlated or not, and only the columns that were significant to the prediction were selected. We used machine learning techniques such as Supervisor Machine, Linear Discriminal Analysis, Random Forest, and Artificative Neural Network to predict whether each of these points belongs to sUP, Up, or Down. Finally, we created the error sequence and ROC Curve to measure the accuracy of the prediction and determine whether the analysis results were significant. 2. Please tell us how you feel about winning the award and some tips for winning. The biggest force for winning is understanding big data, developing insights, and learning data visualization and machine learning techniques through a course called "Basics of Big Data Analysis and Interpretation" by Professor Jung Howon. Based on what I learned from the professor, I was able to participate in many competitions. Also, when I was looking for information on real estate competitions, I was able to get the necessary data without wandering around because I asked Professor Kim Jae-wook for advice. With the help of our professors, we were able to produce analysis reports that included both data and techniques. Not only did we have a solid report, but also with previous experience of winning two awards, we provided a smooth delivery of the analysis. I believe that is why we were able to receive an award. I had been worrying if I could do well in studying big data, but this contest was a very meaningful event because I could yield results that helped relieve my anxiety. I was able to gain the confidence to participate in other competitions without hesitation by continuing to study this field.

CPA Mentoring Seminar, the best support for young generation
CPA Mentoring Seminar, the best support for young generation On July 9th (Tue), KUBS Career Development Center hosted `CPA Mentoring Seminar’ at Hyundai Motor Hall. The seminar covered student’s live questions and inquiries about KICPA (Korean Institute of Certified Public Accountant) exam and the businesses of the accounting firm. Two currently active CPAs, Daehoon Kim (KPMG, KUBS06) and Jinhyung Kim (Deloitte, KUBS07), participated in the seminar to give a generous advice to undergraduates who have interests in becoming an accountant.   Seminar went through the two separated sessions, in order to distribute the topic of the Q&As. The first session covered the questions about preparing the CPA exam, and the second half was made up of the inquiries in accountant’s jobs and tasks at the business scene. At first, Jinhyung Kim pointed out his past motivation for the CPA exam, explaining as “After the military service period, I have begun to find my own strength, not depending on the college education’s name value. Therefore, I decided to prepare CPA exam that I can guarantee my own expertise in market and my future income stability”. About the exam, Daehoon Kim shared his study know-how and experience, saying “I began studying from summer vacation period and considered the first-time exam as a practice, then I made a short-term objective to enter into Jungjincho (KUBS CPA-exam group). To mitigate the anxiety, I didn’t throw the practice sheets away and stored them. Also, I recorded my studying hours respectively per exam subjects. In addition, I searched for the online courses which exactly match my own learning style. My preparation period began relatively earlier than others since I started studying at the beginning of my military service period. Also, I believe that planning a strategic studying schedule rather than hastening myself to achieve an early success was the major source to win the exam”.   In the next session, two speakers provided information of CPA’s career, after getting the license. Jinhyung Kim explained, “There are 3 divisions in an accounting firm. Basically there are Auditory division, FA division which handles M&A businesses and real estate value estimations and finally the Tax division that manages tax investigation issues and tax affairs”. Daehoon Kim replied on the question asking about CPA’s high rate of job transfer, saying “In my opinion, it is better to stay at accounting firm if you have anything left to learn about the business. Considering the successful transfer cases that I know, people leave the office when they start thinking ‘Now I don’t have any learning points in the firm’”. One student asked about the general outlook of CPA as a job, and Jinhyung Kim answered “Honestly it is a saturated market. It is certain that CPA’s job market can’t elude from getting rigidity while the Korean economy shows negative trend of growth. It is quite definite that CPA’s job market following the macro-economic index”. Daehoon Kim commented “But since accounting and taxation market are not really dynamic compared to other sectors, the market will keep its stability in a good momentum”. The seminar took over two hours, CPA mentors sincerely sharing their wide range of experiences and knowledges for the undergraduate mentees. The event was successfully ended with Daehoon Kim’s remark, saying “I feel honored coming to campus and to meet those undergraduate students who have huge potentials. I hope this seminar helps their exam preparation and career growth”.

One student questioned “How can we get most out of school lectures?”. Oh replied, "Lectures can be helpful to find out what type of subject they are. Micro and macroeconomics lectures, as well as administrative law lecture were very helpful in preparing for the exam." Choi, who works at the Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy, replied to a question asking about his experience in ‘Exam preparation class (Takmajung)’. He said, "I have received immense help from my classmates during my hard times. Those who graduated Takmajung are currently working in various departments, and this also helps me in work. In Part 2, mentors shared their own stories related to work experience. "In fact, almost all the ministries are located in Sejong city, so advantages and disadvantages coexist,” replied Oh, according to the question about his current job satisfaction. He also added, "There is merit in that there are well-organized systems such as parental leave, I think.” When asked about the work environment, Choi said, "The working environment and job satisfaction depends on which ministry you work at."
