The Global MBA (GMBA) aims to produce creative global leaders equipped with expert knowledge of management theories and a variety of business cases. In addition to its innovative curriculum, the GMBA will provide a truly GLOBAL education with around 50 percent of its participants coming from 20 to 30 countries.
The students will be exposed to a "global" experience through working with their international teammates on different projects. Furthermore, Korean students are encouraged to go on exchange or visiting programs to the United States, Europe, or Asia depending on their interests.
During the same period, their international students will become Northeast Asia (Korea, China, and Japan) experts by taking numerous electives focusing on the region and on Korean companies in particular. The program also will allow students to experience the world through practical experience such as internships and case competitions.
The Yonsei University School of Business’ Global MBA (GMBA) has become the first MBA program in Korea to be ranked in the “World’s Top 100 Full-Time MBAs” by The Economist magazine, and was positioned 4th among Asian business schools included in the ranking. The magazine’s editors ranked the GMBA 76th in the world, higher than the China Europe International Business School and the National University of Singapore. These rankings have come after a concerted effort at the school to develop and implement a diverse range of specialized programs to meet the academic needs of people with different levels of expertise and of people at different stages in their careers. An integral part of that effort has been to attract international students as well as draw faculty educated at the world’s premier schools who will undertake sophisticated research.
