College of Global Business
Introduction to the College of Global Business
The College of Global Business consists of two schools and three departments: the School of Business, the Department of Taxation and Accounting, the Department of Finance and Securities, the Department of International Economics and Trade, and the School of Foreign Languages for Business.
The School of Business strives to educate students to become business leaders in business, and in financial or public companies. A variety of practical programs allow students to improve their business skills and practical knowledge. Through professional education, students can achieve many employment opportunities and employment in various industries. We provide assistance for three majors: business administration, railroad management and tourism management. Moreover, we invite the CEO's of local and public companies as professors, in order to promote industry-university collaboration. Furthermore, we offer a variety of focused programs for students to improve their specific knowledge-base and earn several certificates. This eventually helps students achieve employment opportunities.
The Department of Taxation and Accounting at Kyung-il University trains students to be tax agents and accountants for a variety of organizations such as, tax and accounting corporations, banking facilities, and government-run enterprises. Our Department helps students obtain competitive accounting skills, complete with the familiarity of tax and computer information systems, in order to prepare them for the public service examination, and to prepare them for a job interview with a qualified career counselor. Our Department provides students with a unique three track education system in Korea. Through this system, students will be able to get certification or qualification within their major, secure a scholarship, gain experience in the industrial world through internship programs, and finally become employed. The objective of our Department is to achieve 100% job placement for graduating students, while continuously striving to be highly competitive.
The Department of Finance & Securities was the first such department to open among 4 year colleges and universities in 2009. We work productively to increase student employment rate through practical programmes and customized training education. The faculty fosters financiers specializing in banking, securities, corporate finance, and derivatives through theoretical and practical education in business administration, economics, corporate finance, and accounting. In addition, our department fosters multi-tasking through teaching business administration, economics, corporate finance, and accounting, while helping students to get at least two kinds of financial certificates.
Since the WTO(World Trade Organization) was launched, mutual exchanges of human and material resources between nations has been continuously increasing. With a lot of financial support from the Ministry of Knowledge and Economy and The Korea International Association (KITA), the Department of International Economics and Trade has attracted a number of commercial experts in an attempt to offer better lectures to students and to take part in overseas trade exhibitions. We have been making every effort to achieve high employment rates by generating and supplying global trade experts to society. Especially, by offering lectures like, "The Story of the FTA" and “Understanding and Utilizing the FTA" - funded by Ministry of Knowledge and Economy from this year - we are trying to teach our students about the FTA better and make them FTA experts. Since our top priority is to provide field curricula by visiting overseas, commercial organizations, tourist attractions and foreign universities, we have students engaged in proactive learning ensuring they are fully satisfied with our curricula.
The School of Foreign Languages for Business has two majors, English and Japanese, with the following academic strengths. Each major orchestrates courses for intensive language practice with native speakers of each language and within a limited class size. In addition to in-depth academic courses, this major provides many other practical courses to help facilitate the students' for future career choices. Furthermore, this program promotes students to become sensitive to the local contexts of these languages by letting them attend overseas training at sister schools.
Greetings from the Dean of Global Business
The College of Global Business consists of the School of Business, the Department of Taxation and Accounting, the Department of Finance & Securities, the Department of International Economics and Trade, and the School of Foreign Languages for Business. To date, each school or department has run individually. However, all of them are integrated under the name, The College of Global Business. Currently, we have 40 faculty members who are in charge of educating around one thousand students. For 25 years, education about business at Kyungil University has been highly regarded so that Kyungil University can provide competent human resources for our local communities and nation.
Our college is divided broadly into two areas: the business field and global field. In the business field, students in the School of Business can specialize in business administration, railroad management, and tourism management. Furthermore, they can study 6 different tracks, including the track of driving a train. Students in the Department of Taxation and Accounting can major in the track of consulting taxation and accounting and in the track of a CFO. Students in the Department of Finance & Securities can specialize in the track of banking and securities and in the track of insurance. In the global field, the Department of International Economics involves professional training relevant to international commerce, and the School of Foreign Languages for Business trains students in the languages of English and Japanese to prepare them for adminstrative detail in the global era. The above two fields can work together to produce global professionals.
Business in the global era gives rise to the limitless competition beyond time and space. In this era, we cannot overemphasize the importance of producing global professionals. Our university will continue to enhance students' capacity by bringing all efforts together for business education.
Since our college serves a momentum for novel growth, now we invite all of the Kyungil members to train students to become professionals fit for the current times utilizing all our efforts and capacities.
