Sogang University Designated as the Most Excellent University

in the ‘2017 Dong A Ilbo Dream University for Youth Ranking’

 

 

Sogang University was designated as the most excellent university in the ‘2017 Dong A Ilbo Dream University for Youth Ranking.’ This ranking is organized by Dong A Ilbo and the Ministry of Employment and Labor, and it aims to evaluate career development, employment, and business start-up infrastructure, along with curriculum, support services, and the network of universities. The 45 universities that passed the first round of evaluations (among 227 eligible universities in Korea) were evaluated based on capacity, satisfaction, and employment rate as related to success in career development, employment, and business start-up. From this evaluation, Sogang University emerged with the most excellent ranking possible. Of particular note, Sogang is the only university to have been ranked as most excellent for four years in a row, dating back to the initiation of the ranking in 2013.

The evaluation was conducted by aggregating the scores from the four areas of infrastructure, education, service, and network, along with 12 indexes based on capacity, student satisfaction, and employment rate, for 45 universities that passed the basic capacity evaluation based on the Higher Education in Korea Service.

The employment support team played a pivotal role in Sogang University’s ranking as the most excellent university in the ‘2017 Dong A Ilbo Dream University for Youth Ranking.’ The team will continue to make their best efforts in supporting the successful employment and career-building record of its students by continuously enhancing the university’s services relating to success in career, employment, and business start-up, and by developing and operating various programs appropriate for the needs of students; for example, the two-way live streaming broadcast of the “Sogang Employment Show – My Little Television.”
