Korea’s First Business School with AACSB Accreditation

On September 2002, the Seoul National University (Graduate) School of Business became the first in Korea and fourth in Asia, to be given full accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) for its entire curriculum. The accreditation of AACSB affirms that the SNU GSB’s education system meets the rigorous standards and curriculum set by the AACSB. The AACSB is highly selective in giving accreditations; even in the United States, the country where the MBA program was first conceived, only 10% of the approximately 4,000 business schools have been approved by the AACSB. The SNU GSB is now able to co-host various programs, and exchange students, invite professors, conduct collaborative research projects and run dual degree programs at an equal footing with top business schools with AACSB accreditation around the globe.

Dual-degree and Student Exchange Partnership

SNU GSB has extended partnerships with top-tier business schools in order to offer student abundant global experience through dual-degree or student exchange programs.

A Selected Member of the Ministry of Education’s CAMPUS Asia Consortium

The SNU GBA is the only business school in Korea to be selected as part of the Ministry of Education’s CAMPUS Asia (Collective Action for Mobility Program of University Students in Asia) Consortium, a collaborative program led by the Korean, Chinese and Japanese government. Based on the CAMPUS Asia program, the SNU GBA is currently running various collaborative programs with China’s Peking University and Japan’s Hitotsubashi University, through which students can concentrate on studying the unique East Asian development model and research on strategies for sustainable economic development and changes in the corporate governance structure. The SNU GBA students also take part in the summer training program, “Doing Business in Asia,” where they visit the leading companies in Korea, China, and Japan and conduct collaborative projects. The SNU GBA students can also earn dual degrees or apply for the student exchange program to study at the two universities with government scholarship.
