Student Exchange Program

Korea University Business School has partnership agreements with 30+ business schools all over the world for the MBA program. Students who complete a one-year curriculum of the Global MBA in Korea have the opportunity to study abroad at one of the partner schools for an additional semester. Each student has flexibility in terms of selecting location and school based on one’s preference.

Dual Degree Program

Students who are enrolled in the Dual Degree Track will study one-year curriculum of the Global MBA and then study abroad at either ESCP Europe in France or EBS Business School in Germany for an additional year. Along with an MBA degree from KUBS, students will receive a Master’s degree from the corresponding overseas business school.

Business Practicum

The Global MBA not only offers business academic courses but also an opportunity to utilize theories and practical skills acquired from the program in the real-world work environments. Under the basic principle that there is a difference between knowing and doing, KUBS first introduced a specialized business education methodology to focus more on the utilization of knowledge rather than merely acquisition. Small groups cooperate with employees of the companies and non-profit groups participating in the business academic network, examine actual issues facing those organizations, and subsequently propose possible solutions. As such, students can cultivate the skills and knowledge that are essential for future business leaders by developing practical solutions based on recent business theory.
