In 1940, Sejong University was created based on the fundamental idea of a place of learning dedicated to excellence in education and research. Navigating successfully the rough seas of Korea’s modern history, Sejong has faithfully continued its tradition of producing competitive graduates that society required and cultivating the latest innovations that served as the new engine of economic growth. Years of this endeavor have resulted in one of Korea’s most distinguished and prominent academic institutions, and Sejong is now poised to make another leap, aiming to become a university with global recognition.

Today, we are witnessing the rapid transformation of our knowledge-based society built on a robust IT industry into the so-called “Smart Society” underpinned by wide-ranging mobile devices, facilitating the development of a ubiquitous environment where person-to-person, person-to-object and object-to-object communication can occur in real time. This change of enormous magnitude poses challenges for universities everywhere that question their reason for being. The current times demand nothing less than a fundamental change and innovation and a paradigm shift in research and education.

The Department

Sejong University Business Program

The Sejong Global Business Program is an AACSB-accredited international business program entirely taught in English, with a focus on Asian and Korean corporate innovation. The program is composed of a core curriculum that gives a solid foundation on business theory. It is supplemented by a large selection of business and finance elective courses to dive deeper and acquire leadership and technical skills in demand by today’s global employers.

One of the highlights of the Sejong Global Business Program is the 3+1+1 International Accelerated Degree Program, in partnership with Arizona State University. This program allows students to graduate with a Master’s degree in Business after finishing the first 3 years at Sejong University. So under the program, students will complete:

  • 3 years at Sejong University
  • 1 year at Arizona State University (final year of bachelor’s degree)
  • 1 year at Arizona State University (Master’s degree)

The program is very global in nature with a total of 1,845 international students (exchange students included), attracted to the program by its strong academics, the generous scholarship scheme of the university and the internship opportunities the program’s career center provides for its students.

What it doesn’t include is…

Writing your essay for you

While we do guide you and provide you with a framework and insights on how to write a good essay, we cannot actually write your Personal Statement for you. This is done for both legal and ethical reasons.

The university application fee

This fee is charged by the university is separate and must be paid separately. It is non-refundable.

Visa application

Once admitted, you must separately apply for a visa in the Korean embassy/consulate in your country and we cannot help you with the process as every consulate/country is different. However, we will help you with Foreign Registration at the Korean Immigration Office once you are in Korea.

A guarantee for admission

Although we have a strong expertise in academic consulting and experience in successfully admitting students in the best Korean universities, the ultimate admission decision (as well as the scholarship decision) is made by the university alone, after a review of your profile.
