First Outdoor Event of 15th G-MBA Class, “Highly Satisfying” Campus Tour and Program KUBS(Dean=Johngseok Bae) 15th Global MBA (hereinafter G-MBA) class student council hosted ‘ON CAMPUS EVENT’ (hereinafter Campus Event) on Friday 23rd April 3pm. Campus Event is the first outdoor event since the admission of the 15th G-MBA class last August. Students strictly followed COVID-19 guidelines while bonding, participating in various missions and recreation programs at many locations on campus.   The 15th G-MBA class students gathered on the lawn in front of Business School Main Hall and took a group picture. Dean Johngseok Bae greeted the students saying “[I am] happy that G-MBA students finally have the opportunity to meet each other on such a good day” and “[hoped] the students to stick to COVID-19 guidelines and spend a meaningful day”.     Due to the COVID-19 administrative order to ban gatherings, students were grouped into 10 teams of 3~4 people for group activities. They did not get together in one place at once. Rather, the students were scattered to various places on campus such as Business School Main Hall, Law School Building, Central Square, and Inchon Memorial Hall. The 15th G-MBA student council arranged missions and games such as ‘capital city quiz’, ‘famous people photo quiz’, and ‘learning KU cheers’ and gave out presents.   The 7 G-MBA 15th student council members each supported or hosted group activities and games. The 15th Student President Eunjin Kim said, “we did not have an opportunity to learn about our campus since our admission last august so [today’s event] was very meaningful”. The student president also said “I feel proud because students found the campus beautiful and showed high satisfaction to the overall program.”   Article·Photo | KUBS Management Support Team

[2021 Start-up Station Lecture Series #2] Start-up Enuma Korea Gets Funded 5 Billion Won by Elon Mus

[2021 Start-up Station Lecture Series #2] Start-up Enuma Korea Gets Funded 5 Billion Won by Elon Musk Hyunju Kim, the Impact Business Director, lectures on “The Road to Social Venture: Educational Innovation in Developing Countries” The second round of the 2021 Startup Station Lecture Series, hosted by Korea University Business School (Dean=Jongseok Bae), was held on April 6th. The Lecture Series is a program organized by the Entrepreneurship Academy of Seung Myung-ho Entrepreneurship Education Center, the educational department of Start-up Station. Various start-up mentors are invited to give lectures in this series of events.   In this event, Hyunju Kim, the Impact Business Director of the start-up Enuma Korea, gave a lecture on “The Road to Social Venture: Educational Innovation in Developing Countries.” The speech was broadcasted online due to Covid 19.   Enuma Korea is an Edu-Tech start-up that develops and runs mobile education applications for children such as Todo Math and Todo English. In May 2019, it launched Kitkit School, a game-based program that enables self-directed learning for children, thereby winning the “Global Learning XPRIZE.” This eventually led them to be funded 5 billion won by Elon Musk.   Director Kim explained how Kitkit School helped children from developing countries with self-directed learning. There have been efforts in the existing digital education industries to utilize Edu-Tech to provide solutions for education in marginalized regions, but it did not lead to successful academic achievements. Director Kim commented on the problem, stating that “Many of them focused too much on hardware development, therefore paying less attention to the importance of user-based learning experience.”   Moreover, Director Kim explained the outlook of Enuma Korea in today’s society, where the education gap further widened due to Covid-19. She wrapped up the lecture by saying that “Enuma School Program is reaching out to children of regions such as Indonesia and Latin America, where children have difficulty accessing online education services.”   Article | Hyejung Park (College of Liberal Arts, Korean Language and Literature Major '19) Photo | KUBS Start-up Station

KUBS Hosts the 1st Career Week of 2021: Global Vendor Financing and Working in a Global Company

  KUBS Hosts the 1st Career Week of 2021: Global Vendor Financing and Working in a Global Company     The 1st Career Week of 2021, hosted by Korea University Business School (Dean= Bae, Johngseok) and organized by the KUBS Career Development Center, was held on Thursday, March 19th. The event was scheduled into two sessions: career lectures, which aimed to help students find their career paths, and special lectures on enterprises. This year’s Career Week was held online due to Covid-19.   Special lectures on enterprises, which provided information on various industries and departments, were given by personnel currently working in diverse business sectors. Jung-Nam Kim, the Country Business Leader (CBL) of DLL, a subsidiary of Netherland’s Rabobank Group, gave a speech on “Global Vendor Financing and Working in a Global Company.” DDL is a finance company that provides services based on global vendor finance.   CBL Jung-Nam Kim explained about global vendor financing based on DDL. Financing is the process of providing capital to businesses, consumers, and investors, which operates based on three major types: equity financing, debt financing, and a mix of both. Global vendor financing companies offer financing expertise to different companies by signing global partnership contracts with vendors or client companies.   Unlike traditional banking, where a two-way transaction is occurred between a bank and a customer, global vendor financing is conducted by three different stakeholders: vendor, dealer, and customer. CBL Jung-Nam Kim stated, “Our company professionally deals with diverse fields including IT, construction equipment, agriculture, and health care.” He emphasized that since vendor financing companies manage solutions such as product leasing and mortgage loan, it requires a high level of profession just like a vendor company. He continued his explanation by showing an organization chart of a financing company as well as the flow chart of financing products such as product lease.   In the second part of the lecture, CBL Jung-Nam Kim gave a speech on “Working in a Global Company,” dealing with the flextime system and meritocracy. He emphasized that communication skills, active participation, and teamwork are the key to working in a global company. Moreover, he advised that it is one good option to branch out into a global company after building work experiences in domestic companies.   Following, he introduced “Seven Principles of Reporting,” a book dealing with strategies of business reporting such as speaking to the point. Later, during the Q&A session, CBL Jung-Nam Kim gave an answer to the question on how to develop communication skills, saying that “Reading books and taking business courses are indeed helpful, but the best way is to learn through experience by participating in a variety of activities, such as internship programs.” He ended the lecture by advising that “You should come up with your own personal story and thereby appeal to the company how much you are suitable to the hiring position..”
