SKK GSB ranked 35th in the world-2021 Financial Times Global MBA Ranking
Sungkyunkwan University Graduate School of Business (SKK GSB) has been ranked 35th in the world, 7th in Asia, and 1st in Korea in the 2021 Financial Times (FT) Global MBA Ranking. The FT Global MBA Ranking is an annual indicator of business schools’ overall status and quality. Unlike other rankings centered on US MBA programs, the FT ranking is global and assesses business schools all around the world.
SKK GSB is the only Korean business school in the world’s top 100. SKK GSB’s MBA has been crowned #1 in Korea for ten consecutive years, while it has been among the top 50 worldwide since 2017.
Asian business schools fareprominently in these rankings: 12 were included in the top 50, including HKU, CEIBS, NUS, HKUST, and SKK GSB.
SKK GSB recieved a particularly high score in the following categories: career services (5th), career progress (13th), and international faculty percentage(17th).
Professor Eric Shih, Dean of SKK GSB, notes:
"We are proud of this accomplishment. It is a strong signal that SKK GSB is being recognized globally for the value we deliver and the impact we have on our students and alumni’s careers.”
SKK GSB launched two new programs last year, the AI MBA and the MS in Business Analytics. These programs bring together advanced topics in AI and big datawith business education to help students acquire the knowledge and skills that are essential in Industry 4.0. These courses have attracted tremendous interest, not only from individual applicants but also from companies.
SKK GSB's MBA has also been gaining rapidly in popularity. In particular, the number of applicants for the 100%-English program increased significantly year-on-year. In a world ravaged by the COVID-19 pandemic, Korea has proven to be a relatively safe place to live and study. Many students who were planning to pursue an MBA abroad decided to remain in Korea instead, while the number of foreign students at SKK GSB continued its steady rise.
