In 2020, which is a significant time of transformation, KUBS will strive to foster new leaders who can understand the root of business studies and develop creative goals”.
This year, Hankyung Business School Ranking made its 13th assessment for Korean business schools.

Therefore, Hankyung’s aim is on evaluating how the graduates from business schools are actually performing as employees after finishing their MBA courses. Above all, Hankyung values leadership capabilities that can quickly adapt into new environments and motivate others as team-workers.
