Hanyang University is one of the largest and most comprehensive private universities in South Korea and was founded in 1939. Business education was offered for the first time at Hanyang University in 1959 in the College of Politics and Economy. The School of Business was established in October 2000 as a separate entity to specialize in business research and education. In the intervening years, business courses had been offered at the College of Business and Economics.
In September 2004, the drive for further growth gathered momentum when the School representatives and major stakeholders envisioned a new set of Development Strategies for our school, including construction of a new building for HYBS.
In fall 2006, the Global-Techno Graduate School of Business Administration was launched as one of the first government-certified MBA programs in Korea. Indeed, our MBA program has been a strong building block of HYBS, striking a balance between theoretical concepts and practical real-world experiences.
