‘Dankook ranks 6th in universities with the most graduates serving as CEOs of a top 100 business’ rated by the Korea Economic Daily Business Magazine (Hankyung Business)

Three Dankook graduates were found to be serving as the chief executive officer (CEO) of a top 100 business in Korea. Among universities that have graduates in the CEO post of a top 100 company, Dankook ranked in 6th place.

In the cover story of the 1,230th edition (Jun 24~30, 2019) of the Hankyung Business magazine, three CEOs among the leaders of the top 100 businesses in Korea were Dankook alumni –  Han-woo Park (Department of Business Administration) at Kia Motors (8th), Do-jin Kim (Department of Economics) at IBK Bank (48th), and Il-moon Jung (Department of Business Administration) at Korea Investment & Securities (85th). Hankyung Business stated that the top 100 companies were selected based on revenue and net profits and introduced the profiles of each company’s CEO.

While the named DKU graduates have frequently been in the media spotlight, most recently, IBK president Do-jin Kim became Chair of the ‘Department of Economics’ Scholarship Foundation’ and delivered 105.84 million KRW in scholarship funds to current students last May. Il-moon Jung, who was the first publicly recruited employee to become CEO of Korea Investment & Securities, has also recently been in the media often. FN Guide, which provides financial information services, reported that, following Jung’s appointment, Korea Investment & Securities is forecast to see a 20% increase in revenues compared to the previous year.
