Dean’s Welcome Message

Welcome to Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU)


Graduate School of Business

Welcome to the No. 1 business school in Korea. Founded in 2004, SKK Graduate School of Business was built on a vision of delivering a world-class MBA education in Korea so that students would not have to travel overseas to receive a top-tier business education. In a short period of time, the vision was realized when we were ranked as the best MBA program in Korea and among the top business schools in the world by Financial Times.


What truly sets apart the SKK GSB experience is an innovative pedagogy that goes beyond textbook theory though our Action Based Learning or learning-by-doing philosophy. We strongly believe that student achievement best takes place when students are engaged in and excited about learning and when they can connect their learning to the real-world. In any given class, you may be listening to a guest lecture from an industry leading expert on cryptocurrency or debating with your cohort about what action to take in a live marketing case. But you are also just as likely to be playing a simulation game to test your business strategy, building a customer retention model using real big data, or working as a student-consultant for a major corporation to develop a business plan to launch a new product. No matter what our students are engaged in, they are always supported by a faculty that embodies the true teacher-scholar ideal and a team of professional staff that is dedicated to student success.


At SKK GSB, we are proud of fostering one of the most globally diverse learning environments in the world. Our world-renowned faculty come from all around the world, and our students and alumni represent over 57 countries. Beyond SKK GSB, our students take advantage of our large network of global partnerships to pursue study abroad and dual degree opportunities at top business schools around the world, including Indiana Kelley, MIT Sloan, Dartmouth Tuck, and UC-Irvine Merage in the U.S., CEIBS in China, HKUST Business School in Hong Kong, EDHEC in France, IE Business School in Spain, ESMT and WHU in Germany and SMU in Singapore. Indeed at GSB, global is not just a word but a part of our DNA.


This is an exciting time to be at SKK GSB as we transition our curriculum to the forefront of the digital and analytics revolution. I encourage you to enquire about one of our distinctive programs: the Dual Degree Executive MBA with Indiana University-Kelley School of Business, Professional MBA, Full-time MBA, MS in Business Analytics, and the Tri-Continent Masters in Management Studies in collaboration with EDHEC and University of California-Berkeley Haas Business School. Each program offers a unique opportunity and is geared to help you achieve professional success.


Please come see what SKK GSB has to offer and I hope to meet you soon.
