Welcome to Konkuk Business School (KBS) and extend our cordial invitations by sharing with you who we are and what we value most.
The story of KBS dates back to a humble non-profit infirmary founded by Dr. Seok-Chang Yoo in 1931 to provide affordable health care to the less fortunate. However, Dr. Yoo found that investing in human capital would make much sense, subsequently turning his attention to raising future agricultural leaders.
In the context of the grim economic conditions of the 1930’s, Dr. Yoo’s ambition of creating a top-class agricultural college was remarkable and ahead of his time. Yet his dedication to nurturing sincere, trustworthy and righteous leaders was hardly unnoticed by his friends; they later stood by him as ardent benefactors to his venture, joining the mission of being the number-one agricultural college. With their help, Dr. Yoo was able to acquire land plots suitable for agricultural practices and seek-out ingenious ways of financially supporting students, showcasing an unusual sense of business acumen and a trailblazing. We believe that reflecting his legacy and character into a modern perspective is important in instructing students, conducting research and interacting with business communities. As such, we want to produce competent students, generate practical business knowledge and expose our students to values of globalization so that they can be responsible leaders impacting international communities.
Please join us in making KBS a place for upbringing students of high caliber and conducting no-nonsense research as well as a trustworthy partner in the globalized community.
