Yonsei School of Business ranked 70th in the world in the Financial Times (FT) Executive Education Ranking 2019 for customized programs. It has been the only Korean business school on the list for the past four years.


The rankings recognized the 2018 customized programs run by Sangnam Institute of Management (SIM) – an executive education institution affiliated with Yonsei School of Business – for corporate clients including major domestic giants Samsung Electronics, IBK Industrial Bank, Shinsegae Group, Kumho Asiana Group, Hyundai Engineering & Construction, LF, GS, and BGF Retail.


The FT Executive Education Custom rankings are primarily based on ratings provided by students and companies which have participated in the programs. Evaluation criteria include program design, teaching methods & materials, faculty, new skills & learning, follow-up, aims achieved, future use, partner schools, and facilities. In particular, SIM ranked 37th globally in the follow-up category, having been recognized for the extent and effectiveness of its attention to feedback and relevant services offered after program participants returned to their workplaces. 


“This achievement reflects the steady advance of our executive education programs that are tailored to meet the specific needs and concerns of our corporate clients,” commented Lee Ho Geun, Dean of SIM. "SIM will continue to develop insightful programs that meet global standards.”
