MBA in South Korea


Shorya251

I have come across Global MBA programs in South Korea like SNU, Yonsei, SKK, KUBS Universities.
They seem to be good and all the programs are in English but I have a few concerns such as are degrees from these Universities Globally recognised. For instance would it help me get a job else where apart from Asia.
Second concern is I heard its hard to get a job in South Korea, would having a degree from these Universities make it a little easier to get a job since they are pretty well known in South Korea.
Lastly, I want to know others order preference for these Universities and of there is any other University I should keep in mind.

Study where you want to work. The SKY universities and KAIST are well known all over the world, but no-one goes to them to recruit for other countries. 

Indeed, it is very hard to find work in Korea, and qualifications matter a lot there. SKK is the only one of these schools to be ranked by the FT: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/sunkyunkwan-university-gsb/global-mba-ranking-2020#global-mba-ranking-2020

Okay. I understand that. My main concern is that if Global MBA degree from these universities would be recognised all around the world. I have been working as a Business Analyst at an MNC. I do want to get into product management field.
SKK is the only one ranked on FT but I have looked into it and found Yonsei and SNU are great as well.... The fact that they aren't ranked confuses me.

They will be recognised as MBAs, but not highly valued. There are very few MBAs with transcontinental value.

The rankings are quite fickle when it comes to countries like Korea, where the business school environment isn't as developed or outward-facing as in other countries. 

You've highlighted the top English-language programs in the country - now, rather than exclusively relying on the rankings, you might think about scouring platforms like LinkedIn so that you can see which school's alumni are best represented in the organizations / industries where you want to work.

It's a tough labor market, but assuming you can speak the language an MBA from one of these schools can go a long way. Nothing is guaranteed, though but in any case none of these programs, maybe excluding SKK, would be great if you have your sights set outside of the country. You should study where you want to work.
