All Lectures are conducted in English
The SBS provides lectures in English for all of the required courses. Foreigners, whom native language is not Korean, can learn with Korean students and finish all MBA requirements. In class, case studies on international corporations are also emphasized in order to help learners acquire global business sense and adapt to the internationalized corporate environments.
Students in SIMBA are required to earn a minimum of 45 credits for the degree within one year and four month program duration. In the first year, students take core courses in business: based on 10 subjects, consisting of a fundamental and advanced course for each subject, worth 1.5 credits per course. These courses are well defined in our MBA programs. In the second year, students have the opportunity to choose either an internship, or business case writing project.
During summer and winter semesters, special elective courses are offered by invited faculty members from overseas universities around Asia. These intensive one-week courses allow professors and scholars throughout Asia to communicate their research and share their ideas to give SIMBA students a truly global perspective on current business issues. Each intensive course will be worth 1.5 credits each.
In the SIMBA program, there are 3 different tracks (General, Corporate Sponsor, and Dual Degree) that are designed to serve the various needs of students. General Track is designed to enable students to have knowledge in the most current business areas to become a well-prepared entry level manager, and to extend the opportunities by facilitating future career growth through knowledge-based community service, group projects and business case writing. The Corporate Sponsor Track is designed to serve students whose studies are sponsored by their own company. The track offers a back-to-work internship to promote cooperation between academia and industry by providing students opportunities to resolve on-site issues through applying theories to practical affairs. The Dual Degree Track is for students who want to pursue dual degrees at institutions overseas.
Begin the yearlong courses with personal leadership activities, case studies, team projects, and Asian business models.
During the first year at Sogang Business School, all students establish a common foundation in the fundamental practices of business, including accounting, finance, marketing, management, operations, strategy, and more. In addition to common courses, students are required to take six elective courses, such as venture startups, business culture, along with many others. At the end of the SIMBA program, students will learn analytical and quantitative skills, including communication, collaboration, leadership, and Asian business culture.
