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”.

In Part 1, mentors talked about how to prepare for the exam. In response to a question asking about how he first decided to prepare for the exam, Oh, who works for the Office of State Coordination, said, "I had great interest in enterprise activities," and went on saying, “Government policy has huge impact on enterprise activities, so I hoped to engage in such a meaningful job by becoming a public officer." 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." He went on saying, “We usually do business related to law revision and budget, and also cooperate with other departments to prepare countermeasures for various issues."     The seminar, which lasted for nearly two hours, was filled with useful preparation tips and practical information about work experience. The three mentors said, "We wish you a good luck in your exams.”

The competition was successfully operated as a second-time opening following the last year, gathering 151 challengers (the number increased by 48% compared to 2018) The award ceremony was held on June 13th (Thu), at Korea Investment & Securities Co’s headquarter located in Yeoi-do. Based on the direct evaluation by senior analysts from the institution, the awards were given to 4 teams (8 people) and one individual who made the out-performing final report and the presentation. All 9 winners get an option to apply in the institution’s internship (permanent transfer type) in second half of 2019. After finishing the internship with an extraordinary result, they may choose to take the final interview to become a permanent employee of the firm.   Interview with Awarde     대상 수상의 김유희(경영15), 안도영(경영15)   1. Why did your team choose Korean Air as a research subject? KIS research challenge is a presentation competition covering the business analysis & investment strategy. For business analysis part, 3 corporate options were given to the team, and each team may choose its firm to take a research on. We decided to choose Korean Air since we thought that it might be the best option to collect the most recent data and make the firm’s future earnings expectation. Considering other two corporates, Netmarble and Amorepacific, weren’t good enough to build up a logical research strategy given the limitations in sourcing the data. We wrote the report by organizing the data of Korean Air’s international skyline sales growth, in order to focus on the fundamentals rather than the short-term issues. 2. Please leave us your comment on receiving the award. And please let us know the secret of your winning mentality. Both of us actively participated in RISK, the value stock research group in KUBS and we are used to doing research on diverse topics of various corporates. Plus, we had time advantages since both of us were on temporary absence on school. We did daily meeting in April, never missed a day structuring the analysis flow, collecting and sourcing the data. Especially, the reason we achieved extra high points on creativity score at the final decision, will be because of our hard work on discovering our own perspective on the Korean Air’s earnings trend. For the further analysis on the financial state and valuation, we approached via regional, RPK and yield calculation and those supported our research a lot. It was a highly rewarding experience, accomplishing what we have targeted, and the output is so sweet.   (우)금상 수상의 유선형(경영15)   1. Please specify the details of your research contents. I made a business analysis report of the firm ‘Korean Air’. The main factors that we considered while picking up the subject were; 1) the importance of macro analysis such as commodity price, FX, rates considering the key features of airline industry 2) opportunity to make an in-depth analysis on the new finance & accounting issue “IFRS 16”. Therefore, we tried to expand the conventional research pools such as basic valuation methods into wider dimension, so that we can get an alpha score on our research. Furthermore, the competitor firm Asiana’s issue or Hanjin Kal related news were also became our interest point preparing the final report. 2. Please leave us your comment on receiving the award. We physically lived in Anam, Seoul but spent time in Paris (worked overnight) everyday, spending most of our days in 24 hours café around the campus. It was pretty hard challenge but rewardable as we have put a lot of effort into it. For me, the reward has an extra significance since I’ve developed myself a lot in RISK in recent one and a half year. At the first time I joined RISK, I had zero information in `Stock’ or ‘Equity’, but I suddenly became a team head and vice president of RISK, finally paving a way to become a winning analyst of KIS challenge. I would like to appreciate all of my team members making greatest works for this competition, and every RISK member who gave us bunch of mental & physical support. Thank you all again!

Special Lecture on Research Ethics and Graduate School of Business Meeting
Special Lecture on Research Ethics and Graduate School of Business Meeting     On June 7th, the Special Lecture on Research Ethics and the Graduate School of Business Meeting of the first semester of the 2019 academic year was held at B205 of Hyundai Motor Building. About 60 graduate students attended.   The Special Lecture on Research Ethics was given by Nam Hyung-doo, a professor at the Yonsei University Law School, under the theme of "Honest Writing Free from Plagiarism." "Plagiarism is technically different from the copyright law," Professor Nam Hyung-doo said. "To understand plagiarism, we have to distinguish it from the copyright law." As for the concept ‘paraphrasing,’ He said, "this is a type of 'plagiarism' that does not violate the copyright law, but what will be criticized ethically." "Thus, plagiarism is a concept that includes elements of copyright infringement and ethical criticism. There can be no homage in academia," Professor Nam added. "When you bring in someone else's opinion, you must state the source honestly," he emphasized.   The meeting was followed by Kim Baeho, Associate Dean for Research. He briefly explained about Graduate School requirements for graduation, thesis issues, and the BK21 Plus Business. Kim concluded the meeting by encouraging graduate students to study, saying, "There will be many times when it is hard to keep going," and added, "even so, it is research that creates the possibility of making a big difference in the future with one's small idea."
