KUBS is the center of business research in Korea as well as a cradle for the fostering of leaders who contribute to the development of the country and the people.

Currently in the 21st century, KUBS has gone beyond being the best in Korea to becoming a world-class business school. After being the first in the nation to earn 5-year re-accreditations for both AACSB and EQUIS, the two most prestigious international business education accreditations, KUBS has also ranked No. 38 in an average of the past three years in UK “Financial Times (FT) Global Top 100 Executive MBA Rankings” (No. 1 in Korea), reaffirming its international positioning in the world.
