Our name

Sol” in Korean means pine tree. Hence, literally, SolBridge means "Pine Tree Bridge".

The pine tree is a symbol of our commitment to on-going, current and relevant education: like the pine tree - evergreen, tall, and adaptable to weather changes. Like the SolBridge International School of Business, the pine tree, which grows everywhere, is truly international. It is the bridge that connects continents and cultures across the global community, much as SolBridge and its graduates are expected to do.
