The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MEST) in South Korea has approved the establishment of SUNY Korea, a partnership in Songdo, South Korea to be operated by SUNY Korea, LLC. The new campus is funded by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy, the Incheon Free Economic Zone, and the Metropolitan City of Incheon. SUNY Korea is the first American university on Korean soil, bringing the largest and most comprehensive state university system of the United States - the State University of New York - to Asia. The College of Business is the most recent college from Stony Brook to join the SUNY Korea departments. At SUNY Korea, the College of Business offers a major in Business Management, with specialization choices in Accounting, Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Management and Operations, and Marketing, leading to the Bachelor of Science degree.
Students spend their junior year at the Stony Brook, NY campus where they study to fulfill general education requirements called Stony Brook Curriculum ("SBC"). The Stony Brook Curriculum includes both breadth and depth of study, and ensures that students will learn skills necessary for life-long learning.
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Jin-Wan Cho as the new Department Chair of Business Management at SUNY Korea. Prof. Jin-Wan Cho earned his Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University in 1995 writing a thesis on capital market microstructure. He has been active in publishing academic papers in globally acknowledged academic journals such as Journal of Financial Intermediation, Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, Journal of Banking and Finance, Financial Analyst Journal, European Journal of Operations Research, handling various issues on derivative markets, stock markets, and international finance. He had a professorship at Georgia Institute of Technology, Ajou University and Korea University from 1994 to 2013. In 2013, he left academia and founded a consulting company, International Arbitration and Alliance Group (IAAG), jointly with lawyers to provide consultations that combine law and finance. Subsequently, in 2014 he founded a research institute, Korea Institute of Finance Industry (KIFI), which is aimed at providing platforms to academicians to commercialize the outputs from their academic research. He provided consultations to the Cambodian government in their effort to vitalize Cambodian Securities Exchange, and conducted a feasibility study for establishment of a derivatives market in Mongolia, Romania and Ukraine. He has provided numerous consultations to major institutional investors in Korea on their asset management processes. Prof. Jin-Wan Cho is now back to academia by joining SUNY Korea as department chair of Business Management. He is expected to fully utilize his experience in academia as well as in business for the benefit of the students by building a program that best suits the needs of the real world.
