Keep Your Day Job. but Still Get an MBA

We offer the Korea MBA program to enable students to experience a world-class MBA, while they keep their day job. With the same faculty, curriculum, and electives as full-time students, K-MBA students work toward their degree with a schedule that accommodates their professional and personal commitments.

Educate Builders and Leaders

We not only deliver the essential knowledge of business functions but also help students build their capacity to think both functionally and systematically to make better decisions even in the setting full of uncertainties. Almost every class takes the team learning approach which promotes collaborative leadership skills. Teams learn how to develop leadership while working with others. This will enable team members to hone their leadership skills by inspiring each other to reach their common goal, and by challenging themselves to contribute effectively.

Curriculum Which Reflects Up-to-date Trends in Business

K-MBA continuously develops specialized courses in response to the global trends, especially in the areas of technology and information systems. It also adds interdisciplinary courses as real-world business problems become more complex and inter-related across functions. This will allow students not only to gain the real-world intersection of skills and knowledge in the classroom but also to understand the broad business implications of decisions as well as the processes and end results.
