Danhyeonjae, the prep class for certified business and economics exams, bears remarkable fruit thanks to its systematic approach


Dankook University recorded the 6th most successful applicants among Korean universities in the 57th Certified Tax Accountant exam with 20 DKU alumni coming in above the final cut score.

According to the list announced by the Human Resources Development Services of Korea on March 26th, Dankook University had 20 alumni pass the 2021 Certified Tax Accountant Exam along with Yonsei University, Seongkyunkwan University, and Konkuk University.



Following 17 successful applicants last year (9th most among Korean universities), Dankook continued to show a competitive position in the tax accountant exam with the 6th most alumni passing the threshold in this year’s exam. In addition, Dankook was ranked 8th among Korean universities in terms of the most successful applicants from 2009 to 2020, recording a total 194 successful alumni according to the Human Resources Development Services of Korea.

In addition, Dankook’s performance in business and economic exams has been impressive with 9 students passing the 2020 Certified Accountant exam and 24 passing the first round of the 56th Certified Public Accountant exam in 2021.

This track record has placed Danhyeonjae, Dankook’s prep class for certified business and economics exams, in the spotlight. Dankook University currently offers such prep classes for students studying for Certified Public Accountant, Certified Tax Accountant, and AICPA (American Institute of CPA) exams.

Students are selected for the classes at the beginning of each year through a series of tests and interviews and are supported with systematic management and an ideal atmosphere for studying as they prepare for exams. Various benefits are also offered, such as tuition discounts and scholarships for students who perform well in monthly mock exams.

“Dankook students are making great achievements in various exams thanks to strong support and mentoring from the university combined with assistance from alumni currently serving as accountants and tax accountants,” says professor Sungjin Son (accounting professor at the Department of Business Administration) who supervises the Danhyeonjae prep class. Professor Son also added that “[we] look forward to students aspiring to become future public accountants and tax accountants to come and take the challenge.”
