International Scholar Invitation Forum held with Professor Alex Edmans of London Business School From the left, KUBS professors Dr. Kim Joonghyuk, Dr. Jungbien Moon, Dr. Kim Woochan, Dr. Na Hyun Seung, Dr. Kyung Suh Park   The forum was held both offline and online while abiding to guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19.   On July 6th(Tue), the ‘ESG International Scholar Invitation Forum,’ hosted by KUBS Asian Institute of Corporate Governance (AICG) and sponsored by ‘KUBS-SK business for Society project,’ was held both online(Zoom) and filmed in studio. The event began with the welcoming words of Professor Kyung Suh Park, head of KUBS Asian Institute of Corporate Governance (AICG), followed by a presentation from Professor Alex Edmans of London Business School and a panel discussion between KUBS professors Kim Joonghyuk(host), Kim Woochan, Jungbien Moon, and Na Hyun Seung.   Professor Alex Edmans, a globally renowned expert in ESG management, mentioned he was aware that ESG became an important topic in Korea. He emphasized the importance of financial elements in ESG management. He explained that financial elements are ‘profit’ for investors and ‘fair prices’ for society and individuals, and ESG management is ‘dividing the whole pie even more effectively.’   How can companies implement ESG management? Professor Edmans asked ‘How a purposeful business makes decisions’ and said, “it is unrealistic to serve customers, employees, suppliers, the environment and the community while providing profit to investors at the same time.” Since it is difficult to satisfy everyone, a company’s goal for ESG management should be determined by ‘Comparative Advantages’ and ‘Principle of Materiality.’ He cited “Corporate Sustainability: First Evidence on Materiality” by Khan, Serafeim, Yoon(2016) and explained that firms should contemplate what value they can deliver by utilizing their current capabilities and focus on specific issues that can be tackled rather than try to solve every problem of their ESG.     Professor Edmans introduced his book, 「Grow The Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit」 and emphasized that ESG is ultimately a helpful value to firms and highlighted the role of shareholders for the responsibility of ESG management. He concluded the session by giving his thanks to KUBS Asian Institute of Corporate Governance for the opportunity to participate in this forum and the participants for their keen attention.   Editor | Yoon Seon Woo (Media & Communication ’18) Photography | Shin Se Rim (College of Political Science and Economics, Economics ‘18)

CDTB Colloquium, "The digital therapeutics market is expanding – we should take interest in mana

CDTB Colloquium, "The digital therapeutics market is expanding – we should take interest in managing big data" Dae-sung Kyung, the Executive Director of Hanmi Pharmaceutical   “CDTB Colloquium – Hamni Pharmaceutical,” hosted by KUBS (Dean=Bae, Johngseok) Center for Digital Transformation & Business (CDTB; Head=Dr. Baeho Kim and Dr. Byungcho Kim) was held on Friday, July 25, in SUPEX Hall. On this day, Executive Director Dae-sung Kyung of Hanmi Pharmaceutical was invited as the keynote speaker and gave a lecture on the topic “Digital Transformation in the Healthcare Industry.” The event was held both online and offline, strictly following COVID-10 guidelines.   Before starting the lecture, Executive Director Kyung explained the pharmaceutical industry in general. The size of the pharmaceutical industry in South Korea is about 21 trillion won, accounting for about 1.2% to 1.3% of the world pharmaceutical market. In the global pharmaceutical market, United States leads the industry by taking up to 40% of market shares, followed by Europe, China, and Japan. While analyzing the hiring trends in the South Korean pharmaceutical industry, Director Kyung mentioned that although he is a business major, the pharmaceutical sector is open to people from different academic backgrounds. In addition, he showed a positive outlook on the development of the pharmaceutical industry, stating that “Despite the fact that national R&D spending in this area is quite small (1.7 trillion won), its growth potential is increasing as we entered into the digital era.”   “The 4th Industrial Revolution in the field of healthcare is actively taking place; pharmaceutical companies are going through digital transformation by merging with big data, mobile, IoT, and cloud,” Executive Director Kyung stated, “It is highly likely that the pharmaceutical industry will develop into a high value-added industry.” Unlike traditional therapeutics where patients are prescript with drugs, digital therapeutics utilize software such as applications and devices to treat patients. In fact, university hospitals use digital therapeutics to stimulate brain activities and learning processes. He further explained that traditional and digital therapeutics will develop to complement each other and that the implementation of AI technology will reduce the time it takes to develop pharmaceuticals by 70% and the cost it takes by half.   In the second part of the lecture, “Global Trends and Implications,” Executive Director Kyung dealt with the concept of medical data. He emphasized the importance of medical data in establishing welfare policies, stating that “data” is the key to digital transformation. He mentioned that South Korea has advantages in collecting medical data due to national health insurance, and that such data can be used to analyze prescription patterns and social costs. Since this process requires the ability to effectively utilize different kinds of data, he encouraged the students to enter the pharmaceutical industry, stating that “You have the skill to combine data sets.”   The last part of the lecture consisted of a Q&A session, where students asked questions such as “How to utilize data in the field of Korean Medicine” and “How to identify variables when government data from Health Insurance Review & Assessment Services is combined with private data.”   Meanwhile, KUBS has established CDTB in 2019 to act as a platform that connects education, research, and industry, while leading digital transformation in the field of education and research. CDTB has been hosting many special lectures since then.   Article | Seonwoo Yoon (School of Media & Communication ’18) Photo | Serim Shin (College of Political Science & Economics, Department of Economics ’18)

[2021 Summer FMBA Special Lecture] ‘Understanding ESG Management and Implementation Strategy’ – Sam-

[2021 Summer FMBA Special Lecture] ‘Understanding ESG Management and Implementation Strategy’ – Sam-il PWC Partner Yun Young Chang Sam-il PWC partner Yun Young-Chang   At Korea University Business School (Dean= Johngseok Bae) Finance MBA summer semester’s ‘Special lecture’ - Practices in Finance,’ Sam-il PWC partner Yun Young-Chang was invited as a lecturer and covered the topic of ‘Understanding ESG management and implementation strategy’. The lecture was held both online and offline, strictly following COVID-19 guidelines to prevent infections.   Partner Yun Young Chang defined what ESG management is before dealing with the details of establishing an ESG strategy. While CSR focuses on the relationship between corporate-society by ‘firms voluntarily assuming various social responsibilities’, ESG is focused on ‘the evaluation of a company’s nonfinancial capabilities(environmental, social, governance) for the purpose of the stakeholders’ investment decision’.   Partner Yun introduced the current situation where ESG regulations are being reinforced, citing examples such as the movement to expand various environmental regulations led by the US president Biden, BMW’s demand for eco-friendly energy use from its business contractors, etc. He then emphasized that when implementing an ESG strategy companies should keep in mind ‘how to build∙implement an ESG strategy in accordance with the companies features while minimizing impairment in one’s business competitiveness’. Intel’s ‘RISE Strategy’, Hyundai Motor’s ‘Promotion of Eco-friendly vehicle vision alignment throughout its affiliates’, SK group’s ‘Social value measurement’ were particularly introduced as systematically well formed ESG strategies and implementation plans.   Among the three agendas of ESG management, ‘Environmental’, ‘Social’, ‘Governance’, confrontation toward carbon-neutrality was mainly dealt for the ‘Environmental’ factor during the lecture. Partner Yun introduced carbon neutral goal plans of global firms such as the use of renewable energy, technological development and achievement in economic feasibility through R&D, etc. Then emphasized the need for domestic companies’ strategic responses on carbon neutrality. In addition, human rights management, BoD composition, etc. were the focuses of ‘Social’ and ‘Governance’ factors. Partner Yun stated that it is necessary to prepare evaluation criteria suitable for the situation of Korea rather than to apply global ESG governance evaluation indicators directly.   Korea University Business School FMBA hosts ‘Practices in Finance-Special Lectures’, during the summer semester, invites practical experts from various fields in the financial sector to give special lectures on their field’s current status, prospects, major issues, and cases. It is to provide practical knowledge and convey experience in the financial field.

CDTB Colloquium, “Digital transformation is the key to the future of finance”

CDTB Colloquium, “Digital transformation is the key to the future of finance”      CDTB Colloquium, hosted by KUBS (Dean=Dr. Bae, Jongseok) Center for Digital Transformation & Business (CDTB; Head=Dr. Baeho Kim and Dr. Byung Cho Kim), was held on Friday, Jun 4th, in LG-POSCO Building SUPEX Hall. CDTB Colloquium is a program that mainly investigates firms’ digital transformation strategies. The center also works to build consensus among KUBS members and to secure active support from related external organizations. In this event, CEO Gwang-yeol Ryu of SGI Seoul Guarantee Insurance was invited as the keynote speaker and gave a lecture on the topic “Changing Environment of Financial Industry and Digital Transformation.” The event was held both online and offline, strictly following COVID-19 guidelines to prevent infections.   Before the start of the lecture, the Dean of Korea University Business School, Jongseok Bae, gave a congratulatory speech. He stated, “Since there is numerous research on the topic of digital transformation, it is important to be aware of what kinds of trials and experiments are taking place in different industries.” He showed his anticipation by saying that “I hope we can expand our understanding through today’s lecture on the financial field.”   CEO Gwang-yeol Ryu began his lecture by explaining the recent performance and the risk factors in the financial industry. “Due to the 2008 Financial Crisis and COVID-19, expansionary monetary policy continued, causing liquidity, household debt, and corporate bonds to increase. Consequently, the number of risk factors increased as well,” he said, pointing out the reality of an unfavorable financial environment. He thereby emphasized that the development of digital technology will change the game in the future.   CEO Ryu continued, “MZ Generation, who put importance on customer experience and prefer online communication, is the new customer base for firms.” “Many BigTech firms – such as Kakao, Toss, and Naver in Korea and Google, Apple, and Facebook in the world – are providing financial services as well. They are starting to take over the market as comprehensive platforms,” he said. As BigTech firms are taking control of FinTech and financial institutions, the financial environment is being centered on BigTech. Furthermore, CEO Ryu introduced the concept of a fast-changing financial environment centered on mobile technology, where AI or blockchain technologies are added to create services such as customer data-based product development. “Legislations in Korea are also starting to reflect the changes in the financial environment by implementing policies such as Financial Regulatory Sandbox and Data Bills,” he added.   Moreover, he explained how digital transformation will take place in the financial industry during the post-COVID-19 era. He further introduced the Marketplace and Open Banking Model based on platform and data sharing technology. “To fully achieve digital transformation, we need to change both the business model and the business organization, based on data-based and demand-oriented hyper-personalization strategy,” he said.   CEO Ryu ended the lecture by briefly explaining his company, SGI Seoul Guarantee Insurance, and its major tasks. He also introduced the company’s digital transformation plans by saying, “SGI Seoul Guarantee Insurance is planning to broaden its business area by utilizing AI and big data in various fields such as household purchase and compensatory damages. Moreover, it will expand its strategic partnership with FinTech and BigTech companies.”   Article | Sangbong Chung (College of Political Science & Economics, Department of PSIR ’17) Photo | Serim Shin (College of Political Science & Economics, Department of Economics ’18)

2021 Spring Semester 4th Career Week, ‘Creating a reason why a company would need me’

2021 Spring Semester 4th Career Week, ‘Creating a reason why a company would need me’   Hosted by Korea University Business School (Dean=Dr. Bae, Johngseok) KUBS Career Development Center, the 4th Career Week of 2021 spring semester was held on June 11th (Fri). The Career Week was consisted of three sessions – employment and corporate special lectures and was conducted as a live online-stream format due to COVID-19. Students in various academic years were able to choose the lecture depending on their individual career interests.   Kang Wonjoon, CEO of Linked-in Korea Partner, gave the first special lecture on employment. CEO Kang lectured on how to use a portfolio when getting a job under the theme of "Express your experience with your capabilities". By mentioning the employment trend where occasional and year-round employment became more common than open recruitment, he advised to focus on expressing the connection between the roles he/she played in the experience with the job competencies, rather than only emphasizing the result of one’s experience. He then stressed the importance of △ appropriate length of portfolio △ securing legibility using a flow chart △ securing reality using photos △ emphasizing ability through detailed role writing △ securing credibility using numerical data △ essential entry of contact information.   Referring to the reality that mobile phones took 70 years and Instagram took three months to secure 100 million users, CEO Kang said, "We need to adapt to the reality that pace of changes are getting faster." In addition, he concluded the lecture by saying, "I hope this lecture was an opportunity to expand options in your life beyond your employment capabilities."   Won Miyoung, program manager of Amazon Web Service (hereinbelow AWS), continued the lecture under the theme of "How to leverage Amazon way" in the second session which was consisted of corporate special lectures. Manager Won began her special lecture with an explanation of AWS along with Amazon's work style and culture.   In particular, she introduced ‘Leadership Principles’ which serves as a basic principle in all Amazon workplaces, and the ’Narrative Writing’ method used in business meetings. ‘Narrative Writing’ is a document that summarizes content prepared to be said in the meeting. This document is read before each meeting and a Q&A session is conducted on each page. Referring to an in-house culture that values content rather than format, she emphasized that one can make his or her thoughts clearer and save more time.   At the end of the lecture, the internship program was introduced and several points to think about before applying to Amazon were presented. Manager Won said, "When you ask someone for help, you need to think about what you can receive and what you can give to the other person" and underlined, "You need to have at least one weapon of exchange value."   In the third session, Choi Eunmi, head of the LG Energy Solution HR Team, gave a special lecture on the theme of "Dream Canvas." Team leader Choi said, "Deciding what position to apply for is as important as choosing a company when looking for a job" and explained, "You have to select the position that suits you well, starting off on the right foot."   She also introduced methods of selecting a position as well as a company. In particular, she emphasized that the basis of one’s choice should be on oneself, not on others’ assessment. "Having the idea of dating a company, you should choose a company that fits your values and areas of interest and focus on it," she added.   At the conclusion of the lecture, she shared ways of how to appeal to human resource managers in letters of self-introduction and interviews. She then stressed the importance of setting clear goals, saying, "’Spec’ can be meaningful only if it is connected with clearly set desired positions."   Covered by | Park Hyejung (College of Liberal Arts/Department of Korean Language and Literature ‘19)

In order to vividly introduce the school as much as possible even in the online environment, a ‘live campus tour’ was held by KUBE where they were well received by high school students while walking around the campus in real time.   Ji Joon-hee(Business ‘17), the 13th president of KUBE, took in charge of the entire event and said “Although it was regretful to have the event online, it was pleasant to be able to meet high school students across the country” and added, “I would like to thank all the students who actively participated in the event and wish that we can meet again in the offline environment”.   Students who participated in the regular campus tour evaluated through a survey satisfaction by commenting “It was really joyful to be able to look at the beautiful campus of Korea University as a student living in a rural area”, and also said “The communication was so smooth throughout the event, including the live campus tour, that there was no regret of not being able to actually be at the campus”. In addition, all the students who participated in the survey answered that they were “willing to recommend the program to their acquaintances, confirming that they were highly satisfied with the event.   Meanwhile, KUBS is holding annual events for teenagers to help high school students set their careers and plan their studies.

Mr. Lee introduced an apartment's idle community space that was remodeled into a children's library with facilities such as an auditorium and display room. The moto of Ibookee, facilitating sustainable activities by gathering people in a common space, started from this project.   Mr. Lee said, "social impact is at the heart of the money and fame that is made by corporate activity."
