The evaluation criteria include ▲salary ▲salary increase ▲career progress ▲aims achieved ▲female faculty/students ▲international faculty/students and ▲FT research rank.


The ranking of KUBS E-MBA is noticeable because it has entered the Top 20 solely with its exclusive business program. While most high-ranked Asian universities run their program with partner universities in the United States or Europe, Korea University was able to rank 20th with its exclusive program. Thus, KUBS has proven that its curriculum, which aims to develop students’ skills as CEOs by focusing on hands-on experiences, is one of the world’s best programs.
