1. The School

Korea University Business School

Founded in 1905 as the department of plutology, Korea University Business School (KUBS) was the first business educational institute to be established in the nation. 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.

Prestigious Learning Experience

Students can learn not only from lectures but also from global diversity in class. Global MIM program is comprised of students from all parts of the world and a wide range of business and cultural backgrounds.

Best of Both Worlds

The Global MIM offers global experiences. All students, domestic and international alike, have access to high-quality business education, unique cultural experiences, and an opportunity to gain international perspectives.

International Internship

International Internships provide students with the real-life professional learning experience of integrating into an organization’s culture and processes. The main objective is to turn academic experience and theoretical knowledge into a professional, multi-cultural experience. International Internships can take place at a CEMS Corporate Partner. Both CEMS Corporate Partners and CEMS alumni actively offer internship opportunities to CEMS students. Internships must cover a period of at least 8 weeks full time and take place abroad.

Corporate Networking

Benefit from privileged contact with highly committed Corporate Partners through program components and company-related events - talent spotting at CEMS does not necessarily begin with a CV and an interview, so see this as your first step through the door of your potential employer!

CEMS Club Seoul

The CEMS Club Seoul (CCS) is the association of CEMS students from the Korea University. CCS' objective is to enhance student life and foster relationships as the networking platform between corporate partners, CEMS Alumni, and CEMS students.
