Alumni Mentoring Seminar Held for Students Interested in Management Consulting
Alumni mentoring seminar for students interested in management consulting, organized by KUBS Career Hub (Dean = Jae Wook Kim), was held on October 31 at Room 208, LG-POSCO Building. Lee Ki-chang(Business’84), CEO of Nemo Partners China, and Choi Chan-young(Business’06) of financial consulting firm Oliver Wyman attended the seminar and gave valuable advice the audience.   "I think it is not very difficult to acquire the necessary ‘skillsets’ for management consulting," said Lee. "In turn, business school undergraduates lack humanities skills compared to their knowledge in business." "In that regard, I would like to recommend reading a lot of books in various fields and become knowledgeable," Lee said. "Providing customers with ‘insight’ gained from such knowledge is more essential in management consulting, rather than just knowing the terminology." In response, Choi said, "As a management consultant, the skills required in the first and second years may change. Thus, it is important to gain insight into reading the big trends of social change," and added, "I personally recommend learning foreign language, and I also recommend learning coding, language of computers The two alumni then gave advice in choosing one’s career. "I moved to consulting because I wanted to do something more influential while working in finance," said Choi. "I liked learning something fun and new rather than earning more money." "I think the most important question is why you want to do this," said Lee. "It's a question that you should consider seriously when choosing your career path.   Choi then talked about the pros and cons of consulting. He said, “In fact, the so-called "WoeLaBell (Work-Life Balance)" is not an easy goal to achieve in the consulting industry,” and added, “the working environment will vary from company to company, but it is still very tough compared to other jobs. "I really hope that people who are willing to work hard will get interested in the consulting industry," said Lee. "You should not choose a life as a consultant just because consultants make a lot of money."   When asked about the prospects of the consulting industry, Choi said, "Management Consultant carries out new projects in various industries every time. Therefore, we are a generalist rather than a specialist in a particular field." “As a generalist, management consulting is in high demand in various industrial sectors”, he added. "I think it is one of the few jobs that can help one grow up in a short period of time," said Lee. "I hope you won’t be afraid to take the challenge.”

And then he emphasized the value of reasonable statistical prediction based on the given data. According to his lecture, big data is a consolidated form of “Volume, Variety and Velocity” which enable us to freely handle the data and to frame a scientific decision process. Also, he stressed that the additional function “Veracity” would be the important research point to focus on in order to find out the fittest process to understand big data.   On the other hand, KUBS’ next plan is to draw the public attention to CDTB program by producing monthly invitation lectures and colloquium events of various academic researchers and industrial specialists.

2019 Social Value Forum Held
2019 Social Value Forum, hosted by KUBS and IBRE and sponsored by SK SUPEX SV committee, was held on Oct. 24 at Hyundai-Motor Hall. This time, the forum was held under the theme of "Social Values and Sustainable Management." Attending the forum were Dean Kim Jae Wook, Professor Bae Johngseok, Associate Dean Chris Changwha Chung, Keynote Speaker Professor Pratima Bansal (University of Western Ontario), Professor Kang Hyung-koo (Hanyang University), Kim Jae-hyun (Crevisse Partners CEO) and Dr. Song Hee-chan (Chulalongkorn University). "Today's forum is the beginning of the 'Social Value and Sustainable Management' project of KUBS," Professor Bae said in his opening speech. "It is an honor to have Professor Pratima Bansal, an authority in the field, and I hope it will be a meaningful time for everyone." Dean Kim then began his congratulatory speech, saying, "I thank the Professor Bae and Professor Moon for preparing for the event." "In the past, business was more about making profit, but now we should focus more on how to make profit in moral ways, and how to use it wisely.” He said that the goal of KUBS is to apply those concepts in the curriculum to foster the future leaders interested in the area. Professor Pratima Bansal, who was in charge of the presentation under the theme "Sustainable Development in an Age of Disruption," first explained the definition of sustainable development. "Sustainable development is about people," she said. "It's not about the environment, as portrayed in the conventional concept.” She also stressed that sustainable development is to make sure that the next generation is better off as we are now, or simply put, to keep the "intergenerational equity." Professor Bansal also said, "Until now, business schools have been busy teaching students how to achieve growth and make money. We should avoid from this principle and find out a new way of teaching.” Professor Kang then took charge of a short presentation on "Insurance Mechanism of Corporate Social Responsibility: A Deeper Look." Professor Kang explained the concept of "Corporate Social Responsibility," or CSR, as an insurance concept. “Insurance is a put option,” he said, adding that a company's put option reveals whether the company's CSR activities are worth of an insurance. Next presenter, Kim Jae-hyun, Crevisse Partners CEO, gave a presentation under the theme of "Impact Investing." He said, "Impact Investing is where the social values and financial values intertwine.” “Before, the market was driven by invisible hands, but now it moves by invisible ‘heart,’ so to say. It's an investment technique that allows capitalism to become more democratic,” he added. During the panel discussion, the audience and presenters continued to engage in heated discussions. Dr. Song explained sustainable development from a Buddhist perspective and asked a question about what could make sustainable development. "It's important to keep the pace of the biological world and the technological," Professor Bansal said. "For this, the transition to a new mindset is essential," Another discussion was about the role of a business school. Professor Kang said, "Some people call it the crisis of a business school, but i think it’s because we failed to jump on the huge trend of sustainable development." “Students are also consumers,” he addressed, adding that it would be necessary to provide useful contents about social issues to business school students. Toward the end of the panel discussion, Professor Bansal said, "You are the generation that will make a difference from the stauts quo," which touched the heart of the audience.

Interview with Finance MBA Program Director Na Hyun Seung
Interview with Finance MBA Program Director Na Hyun Seung     Q. Please briefly introduce yourself and the F-MBA course   Since January of this year, I have been the program director of F-MBA. I am a faculty member of the finance sector, and I teach and study topics of corporate finance and corporate governance. Although the F-MBA program has a history of 13 years, last year it has changed to a two-year part-time course from a one-year full time course, and the overall nature of the course, including its curriculum and membership, has changed dramatically since last year. In the process, former director Jung Ji Woong worked very hard, and I have taken over from this year to pursue both stability and change.   The purpose of F-MBA is to foster financial experts who lead change in the financial industry through an independent Part-Time MBA program specialized in the financial sector. In line with the rapidly changing financial market and the trend of the times, we aim to help students acquire not only traditional financial theories but also new and practical financial knowledge and thinking abilities, and to have the ability to apply it in practice and lead changes in the financial industry.   Q. What do you think of any future changes in the direction of the program's?   The first generation of alumni will be released at the end of this semester after the part-time course transition. Based on my experience during the first two years, I think my current challenge is to maintain the overall direction of the program while increasing the level of detail. Based on trials and errors that were inevitable in the initial trial and error process, we are reorganizing the curriculum in part, and we are also planning to set up a field trip to see foreign financial markets based on the opinions of our students. Also, a cross-registration system is on the process of settling down so that students may take general business administration courses of the Korea MBA within certain limits. We intend to continue to develop new subjects that reflect future trends in financial markets and are more subdivided into various sectors of the financial sector so as to achieve quantitative and qualitative growth through specialized courses in the financial sector.   Q. What are the advantages of Korea University's F-MBA which is different from other schools and courses? First of all, it's an independent process specialized in finance. Instead of having some additional finance-related subjects added to the general MBA course, the entire two-year process focuses on the knowledge acquisition required by the financial industry. Therefore, they are more specialized for students who are engaged in the financial sector or want to enter the financial sector compared to other courses.   Second, it is a process that reflects not only traditional themes and knowledge, but also recent changes in the financial industry and practical aspects. For example, we train computer programming, big data and machine learning, including R and Python, to reflect the recent trend in the financial industry that has been associated with rapidly evolving IT. In addition, we invite working-level experts, who are mainly active in the financial industry, to share living knowledge of the site. Last summer, we invited experts in private equity, venture capital, investment banking, asset management, etc. to give special lectures. In general, we also have working-level experts participating to deliver knowledge that is helpful to our business.   Q. Please say something to those who dream of becoming a prospective MBA. The financial market is changing rapidly. In particular, technological developments such as fintech, big data, artificial intelligence, and blockchain are converging with the financial industry, creating a completely new market environment, and various regulatory changes to accommodate them are also being discussed. Even today's financial workers may feel insecure about the changes and are also feeling the need for education on new trends. The F-MBA is open to those who want to actively embrace these changes, respond and lead. I want you to share your experience and passion with the F-MBA and prepare for a new future.

[Interview with Dr. Hwang Hyun, recently appointed to university in US] "It is important to write an original paper that attracts academic attention" Hwang Hyun (Accounting Major) / Associate Professor, University of Texas at Austin
  [Interview with Dr. Hwang Hyun, recently appointed to university in US] "It is important to write an original paper that attracts academic attention" Hwang Hyun (Accounting Major) / Associate Professor, University of Texas at Austin   황현 박사(회계학 전공) / 미국 University of Texas at Austin 조교수 임용     Q. Please introduce yourself. Hello. My name is Hwang Hyun, and I graduated KUBS 07. I went to University of Pennsylvania as an exchange student in spring, 2012. Then I graduated Korea University with a double degree in business and financial engineering. I received my Ph.D. in accounting from Carnegie Mellon University in May 2019. I am now working as an assistant professor of accounting major at the University of Texas at Austin since June of this year. Q. How did you prepare your doctoral thesis and appointment while you were in the doctoral program? My goal was to write a paper that was original and appealing to the academia. To do this, I read countless papers and listened to various critical comments humbly. I also did my best to make my paper as concise and easy to read as possible. Because it was a difficult process, I tried not to lose confidence. I believe that this experience has helped me to develop my ability to perform my research independently and to be appointed. Q. What factors do you think positively influenced your appointment? First of all, I think Job-Market Paper (hereinbelow JMP) is the most important part. To write a good JMP, it is important to have a) ingenious and inquisitive questions and b) simple, easy-to-read writing. This is because professors read a lot of JMPs to evaluate appointment positions.  JMP presentations are also important. C) A concise and clear introduction and d) good answer to unexpected questions are the two most important factors for a good presentation. For a good introduction, you need to clarify the research questions of your thesis, the results and importance of thesis, and the methodology in which you conducted the research. Also, in order to answer well, it is necessary to fully understand your paper. To minimize unexpected questions arising from your paper, you need endless effort towards your paper. Despite these efforts, you might still receive unexpected questions. I think that it is much better to frankly answer that you are not sure in that situation. Finally, it is also important to create other projects as well as JMP during the Ph.D. program. This will help you appeal your ability to write many papers in the future. Q. I am curious about your future plans. I want to get a deeper understanding of the nature of accounting. What amazed me during my research is the lack of understanding of why accounting standards are generally accepted. Therefore, I want to understand the essence of accounting in depth.    On the educational side, I want to reduce the gap between accounting research and education. Therefore, I want to aim at mathematical understanding of double bookkeeping, the most important concept in accounting class. It would be meaningful if this could supplement or replace the balance sheet and income statement used in accounting education and field for hundreds of years. Q. Could you give some advice for younger students who dream of becoming a global scholar?    Research is a series of training to find answers to questions that our society possesses. Patience, persistence, and confidence are essential for this. The importance of researchers who are able to present a frame of thought in the flood of information will become more important in the future.

He has worked and lived in 5 different continents with experiences ranging from start-up to multinational corporations. ​ ​ Questions : ​ a. Why did you choose CEMS? [Lotta] I first heard about CEMS as a freshman, but immediately knew that this was my place to be as I dreamt of an international career. The global network of like-minded students and over 70 corporate partners provide you with incredible opportunities during your MIM year, but it is also a community that will have your back for a lifetime. ​ b. What is special about CEMS students? [Pietro] CEMS does not only provide leading education in business, but is primarily a community of people who across generations share the same ambition to have a positive impact through their work. To me the innumerable occasions to meet and learn from each other are the real added value that makes CEMS a life-changing experience. ​ c. What is the value of CEMS network? / How did CEMS improve your network? [Lotta] CEMS has a strong community of people attending the program but also those who have already graduated - ranging from fresh graduates to top executives in large MNEs! Through CEMS network I have already gained valuable professional mentoring and even various job opportunities. ​ d. What can you tell us about the extracurricular activities you attended during your CEMS experience? [Pietro] Definitely CEMS Cup activities that were organized by CEMS Club Seoul! During the semester we split our cohort in 4 teams and had many occasions to collect points to our own team by participating for example a Pub Quiz or small daily recycling tasks during our Sustainability Week, and many others.

[Lotta] Every member school in CEMS Alliance has their own CEMS Club, which support global networking among students by arranging social activities both locally and overseas together with other CEMS Clubs. CEMS Club also co-operates with CEMS Corporate Partners to provide students with professional development opportunities. ​ f. What has CEMS taught you that you would have not learned otherwise? [Pietro] I think what is really unique about CEMS is the high exposure to corporate environment. It helps immensely to bridge the gap between student and work life.

What were your best CEMS experiences during the semester at KUBS? [Lotta] Highlights of this semester were definitely our two successful networking field trips in the APAC area. We visited CEMS Club Hong Kong together with CEMSies from Singapore and CEMS Club Tokyo together with CEMS students from Beijing!

[Global MBA] Interview of Cho Sang-uk, 13th G-MBA
[Global MBA] Interview of Cho Sang-uk, 13th G-MBA   Q. Could you please introduce yourself? Hi, I am the President of the 13th Global MBA (hereinafter G-MBA) Cho Sang-uk. Before entering G-MBA, I majored finance at NYU, and built a career in finance at New York. While working in the M&A field, I have witnessed so many success stories in which bankers turned to the start-up field and received billions of investments. Naturally, I became to have my own dreams about start-ups. During my first year as an analyst, I made my first challenge in a start-up at New York as I placed outside orders. It was my first start-up and I relied heavily on outside orders, so it wasn’t a success but came to be a valuable experience. Based on my network that I built in my first start-up, I came back to Korea to benchmark a New York F&B business and started my second start-up. Q. Why have you decided to study at Korea University G-MBA? I have received most of my education abroad, and built my career abroad as well. Thus, I felt that it was important to experience education and social life in Korea. Most importantly, I realized that I do not have sufficient information about Korea nor an appropriate network as I managed a start-up at Korea. Naturally, I decided to enter Korea University’s GMBA whose specialty lies in networking, unlike other schools. Q. What was the most useful course/program/activity while attending G-MBA? Professor Yoo Yong Keun’s “Financial Accounting” class and Professor Kim Young-Kyu’s “Strategy” class was very useful. First, Professor Yoo’s accounting class is very interesting, and he helped my classmates and I to familiarize with accounting and finance easily. For example, he compared corporate or financial M&A to marrying couples’ financial union, which was an interesting analogy. Professor Kim dealt with real business cases based on Harvard Business School Cases. Moreover, he also offered us a chance to present the best strategy for a company after reading a mock company case in 24 hours, in front of a real startup/VC official. I was extremely pleased because my group ranked first in this event. Q. Please tell us about your career plans upon graduation. A lot of thoughts are in my mind. I have seriously considered about having a private business, but  I am willing to fully utilize Korea University MBA's network and resources, and am very interested in venture or private equity-type buy side. Q. Do you have any advice for those who are thinking of attending G-MBA? I have heard about Korea University's excellence in networking several times before I entered the school, but I was very concerned about whether it is true or not. After entering G-MBA, I experienced various networking events, and felt the bond between my fellow students become stronger. In particular, I was proud to see Korea University's high attendance at events such as Go -Yeon Games and events with other schools. Thanks to Korea University's optimal environment for academics and networking, I have been able to maintain a strong friendship with my fellow students. I'm confident that you will not only be strongly connected to your fellow students but also experience the best educational environment through the G-MBA of Korea University!

Interview of KUBS Student Ambassador KUBE 9th Yoon Ji-hyun
Interview of KUBS Student Ambassador KUBE 9th Yoon Ji-hyun Becoming a KUBS Student Ambassador from a ‘Teen Mentee’     Q.Could you please introduce yourself?   My name is Yoon Ji-hyun, and I am currently a sophomore at Korea University Business School. I participated in the third ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ as a teen mentee in my second year at high school, and ever since this event I began to dream of entering KUBS. After entering KUBS, I participated in the seventh ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event as an undergraduate mentor. And since September 2018, I am working as a student ambassador for KUBS in my hope of leading the way through promoting KUBS. Q. You have experienced both roles in the ‘Teen Mentoring Event‘ as a teen mentee and a student ambassador. What is the most memorable episode?   For me, every moment that I had as a mentee, mentor, and an ambassador is memorable that I cherish. Out of all moments, I want to tell you what happened most recently. During our regular tour in November 2018, I advised high school students of my group to participate in the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event that is held during winter break as I told them about my high school days. I actually met those students in the mentoring event last January, and I was pleased to hear that they applied for the event through my advice. I was not only proud of them but also happy that I was able to help someone. Afterwards, I promised myself to work even harder as a student ambassador with pride. Q. Have you dreamt of entering KUBS since you were a teen mentee? What did you learn from the Teen Mentoring event?   I participated in one of the regular tours at Korea University in my first year of high school. The senior student who introduced the business department was cool, and I was impressed by the grand buildings. Since then I just decided that I would study to go to KUBS. One day, while looking around the KUBS website, I learned about the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event and participated as a teen mentee. Particularly, planning and introducing products, ‘Marketing Practice,’ was the most memorable. I became interested in marketing as I actively came up with ideas and presented them in front of people, and came to hope for a career in marketing. Thus, the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event hosted by KUBS helped me to have a new dream regarding business administration.   Q. Ever since you participated in the 7th ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event as an undergraduate mentor, you are working as KUBS’s student ambassador ‘KUBE.’ What made you become a student ambassador?   What came in mind right after I got admitted to KUBS was that I want to become a mentor in the ‘Teen Mentoring Day’ event. From my experience as participating in the event as a mentee, I know how the event is a special and crucial chance, so I wanted to help students in their shoes. More than anything, I love my fellow KUBE ambassadors who approached me and gave so much love. I was so excited to be a KUBE ambassador and attach a KUBS symbol in my chest, which is something that I drew so many times in my notebook when I was a high school student. So after the Mentoring Day event without hesitancy I applied to be a member of KUBE, and was able to get good results as I appealed to that experience. Q. Please tell us what you want to say finally.   If somebody asks the best thing I’ve done since I entered university, I would proudly say ‘becoming a member of KUBE.’ While working as KUBE, I was reminded of my high school days, and I was amazed to know how the programs I participated in were made. KUBE activities were fun, so I enjoyed working with KUBE friends and teachers. I want to say thank you to the 8th KUBE ambassadors who worked so hard and the 9th KUBE ambassadors who will continue to work with me. Now, I would like to sincerely welcome our 10th KUBE ambassadors. I will end by saying that I always thank and love Korea University Business School which has been with me since I was in high school, KUBE 8th, 9th, 10th ambassadors, and teachers of the PR office.

So far, many student councils have tried to get closer to the students, but it was not easy to narrow down the distance. We, WAVE, want to share empathy by narrowing the distance. Just like the slogan of 'Your wish becomes a wave', our core value is to create real results and make our students’ wishes come true.   [Vice President] ‘Society without hurt students’ is another core value that WAVE pursues. We will work hard to make sure that as many students as possible are eligible for the projects we have planned, regardless of its kind. We will conduct a variety of surveys to hear opinions of the minority, and carefully consider all voices. I think that the various opinions and interests of the students will become our driving force.   Q.What kind of effort is WAVE making for KUBS freshmen? [President] First of all, in order to ensure smooth school life for freshmen, we prepared two orientation programs since December. Thanks to that, we finished the orientation without any accident. In addition, we are preparing programs such as career development and cultural lectures so that freshmen can accumulate much experience inside KUBS. Furthermore, we are working to provide a pleasant educational environment to the students through the projects such as the establishment of the male student lounge and the improvement of the female student lounge.   [Vice President] As mentioned above, we prepared freshmen welcoming orientation for about two months and completed it successfully. We thought providing adequate information would be the best way to relieve fear about school life for freshmen students, and we are also trying to make an atmosphere where students can approach and ask questions to our seniors without any inconvenience. One example is to set up a variety of rules and codes of conduct among students to prevent freshmen from feeling burdensome when drinking. It is our greatest goal to gather opinions from new students who are not easily able to deliver their thoughts easily because of their fear about school life.   Q.Do you have any suggestions for freshmen as seniors of KUBS? [[President] I would like to advise you to go through as much experience as possible. I believe that first year in university is the best time to experience various things without any burden or worry about academics. I would like to advise you to go through as many experiences as possible, and to meet a lot of people without any worries. I believe you will find the clothes that suit you best in that process. I hope you will experience diverse things without feeling any pressure.   [Vice President] It's okay to take a break. You have just completed a fierce entrance examination and entered Korea University while overcoming the burden and concerns from others. Good results are a fortune, but that kind of burden will only keep you running. No one will blame you for taking a break. We will always wait for you with strong belief, so we hope you will have a little time to rest, meet your friends, and have time to charge for yourself while doing what you wish to do. Thank you very much.
