Professor Lee Chang-won (School of Business) recently presented his study on the performance of stock price with changes in socially responsible investment (SRI) governance index. Mainly looking at the different levels of performance that various corporations are achieving depending on their SRI, Lee has managed to publish his studies in the academic journal, "Corporate Social Responsibility and Environmental Management." According to Lee, while the performance of a corporation was evaluated only on its actual profit in the past, the importance of fulfilling its social responsibility is gaining weight in its evaluation in order to achieve sustainable growth nowadays. With a trend of studying how to reflect social responsibility within the actual performance of a company, Lee has managed to find the correlations between the stock price of a corporation, which represents its performance, and its inclusion within the SRI governance index. Professor Lee Chang-won (School of Business) recently presented his study on the performance of stock price with changes in SRI governance index, finding the correlation of how corporations within the index showed higher levels of performance both in the short and long term. “It is those that are included in this SRI governance index that have managed to show a higher performance both in the short and long term,” stated Lee. Having to satisfy the various stakeholders within the company, it is mainly those that have managed to conduct such social actions that have seen an actual rise of their stock price, or in other words, shown high levels of performance. This is especially applicable to global corporations, as they have to satisfy the different levels of social actions that their more varied stakeholders require. Socially responsible investment (SRI) It was explained by Lee that the social responsibility of corporations varies across a number of fields, including those of environmental, economic and even those related to the governance structure of such companies. Presenting an example of environmental responsibility, he explained how corporations within the index focus upon issues, both internally and externally. Internally, the working environments of the workers are improved, whereas externally, environmental problems such as air pollution are tackled by the company. The importance of such actions is becoming enhanced, especially when related to the sustainable growth of a corporation. Additional to the traditional financial index, the SRI is also becoming a significant metric for success. “It can be compared to today’s students. They are not only required to simply study hard during their school years but also to become skilled in order to adapt and succeed in the contemporary society. The same goes for companies, as they have to do more than simply make profit,” explained Lee. Lee explained how the inclusion of the SRI governance index has now become an important metric for the performance of corporations and their sustainable growth. The research and its future With the importance of social responsibility for corporations gaining light, Lee believes that it is the highest level of management that should be mostly focused towards this trend. In order to become a corporation that successfully conducts business on the international level, it is crucial to be included within the SRI index and fulfill the levels of social responsibility that is being required in the current industry. Lee started his research in order to prove this correlation and arouse the attentions of domestic corporations, which put a heavy emphasis upon ‘owner leadership.’ Using the traditional event history analysis method, Lee focused upon the actual factors that had an impact upon a corporations’ stock price and compared the performance of those that are either included or excluded within the SRI governance index from 2003 to 2012. He was able to conclude the significance of the inclusion within the SRI index as being crucial, especially within the global business environment. This is due to the fact that it is not only the developed markets, but also the markets of developing countries that are placing a higher emphasis upon social responsibility. Based on his research, Lee showed his hopes towards corporations showing a higher interest in social responsibility, becoming a company that goes from ‘Good to Great’ and that can show actual contributions towards a healthier society. He also added that the students of Hanyang should also become figures that are able to acknowledge and fulfill the responsibilities that the society requires, being able to carry out the school philosophy of ‘Love in Deed’ when they become the true leaders of society in the future.

- 2019.0114[Excellent R&D] GET-Future Lab
Amidst the rising awareness and concerns over climate change, two major events such as the Paris Climate Agreement in 2015 and Volkswagen’s Dieselgate scandal have really started to place countries worldwide under the pressure of stricter environmental regulations. With many countries accelerating their research to overcome the future environmental challenges whilst embracing the oncoming wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Professor Sun Yang-kook (Department of Energy Engineering) has taken up this major mission as a leading research lab in Korea. Sun Yang-kook (Department of Energy Engineering) is explaining how crucial the development of ion battery technology is for Korea. According to the United States Environment Protection Agency (EPA), one of the major emitters of greenhouse gas, a vital contributor to climate change, is carbon dioxide (CO2). The primary source of CO2 includes cars and factories where there is a high usage of fossil fuel and industrial processes. That is why countries, especially those who are member-states of the UN and have agreed to the Paris Agreement, are striving to keep low emission levels to mitigate the worsening conditions. The fact that fossil fuel is an exhaustible source only adds to the incentive to develop the appropriate technology that could even further improve living conditions. One of the major examples of ongoing research for this are the battery-run cars. The current commercial batteries on the market are lithium-ion batteries. However, because it is comparatively less abundant, less capacity-efficient, and higher in cost, research for replacements have already long been in place. Now, there are the likes of Li-S batteries, Li-Air batteries, and Na-ion batteries, but they are still in the process of research and are not enough to fully supplement nor replace the lithium-ion batteries. “Especially because Korea does not have abundant natural resources, it is crucial for us to develop our own technology ahead of other countries,” said Sun. The expected battery-run car sales rate per year (Photo courtesy of Sun) The development of the next generation of ion battery technology is vital as it can decide your place in the future market. Developing and securing this environmentally friendly technology is the future, and that is why time is crucial. “In 2017, sales for battery-run and hybrid cars was highest in Japan (1.1 million), and then in China (800,000), Europe and America in that order. For China, its battery-run car sales increased by 38 percent within just a year and is expected to increase up to 1.5 million by 2020. Overall, the market for battery-run cars and the natural demand for car batteries is expected to increase from $15.7 billion (2016) to $67.6 billion (2020, 331 percent increase from 2016),” said Sun. Sun and his GET-Future Lab lab students That is why Sun has taken full responsibility to lead the GET-Future Lab. The GET-Future Lab receives full support from the school and is the only lab where active research on next generation batteries and interactive knowledge sharing with both companies, such as LG Chemical and POSCO, takes place. “This lab was mainly created and run for three things: secure vital battery technology to take the lead in the market, increase the high-skilled workforce in the battery field in Korea, and enhance research exchange with foreign countries. Getting here was a competitive process as well. Luckily, my work and passion were recognized, and I am proud to lead this lab and contribute to our country’s future,” said Sun.

- 2019.0114Driving Seoul Without a Driver
Driving through the jam-packed roads of Seoul could be tiring and intimidating, and especially so, if you have just gotten your driver’s license. Under such circumstances, it would be nice if you could borrow a hand from a skilled driver. Hanyang University’s Automotive Control and Electronic Lab (ACE Lab), with the help of LG U+ (a Korean telecommunication company), has succeeded in developing such a driving partner: the one who can drive and is always the driver when driving - the car itself. (From left) Lee Seong-jin (Department of Automotive Engineering, Doctoral program) and Lim Won-taek (Department of Automotive Engineering, Doctoral program) are members of ACE Lab. ACE Lab has announced a successful demonstration of their self-driving car. The car drove itself for seven kilometers on the especially busy roads of Seoul, starting from the Seoul Forest, to the Gangbyeon Expressway, to the Seongsu Bridge, to Olympic-daero, and finally, ending on the Yeongdong Bridge, all the while, doing appropriate obstacle avoidance and lane changes. The research team leader of ACE Lab, Lim Won-taek (Department of Automotive Engineering, Doctoral program), and another member, Lee Seong-jin (Department of Automotive Engineering, Doctoral program) stated that the study focused on the self-driving car successfully managing the busy intersections of the highways and city roads of Seoul, the places where drivers typically find it difficult to drive. The particular achievement held two major significances. Technology-wise, cars have become much more intelligent. So far, commercialized, self-driving cars changed lanes only when the driver gave instructions, such as turning on the blinker. In contrast, the car introduced by ACE Lab decides when to change lanes and cut in lines all by itself. Another significance was its cooperation with LG U+ and applying 5th Generation (5G) mobile telecommunication on the vehicles. This communication between the vehicle and other objects, or between two vehicles, brought about improvements in various aspects, primarily in obstacle avoidance. For instance, upon recognizing an accident ahead, the first vehicle could inform the following vehicles, thereby reducing the possibility of having to stop suddenly, and consequently, decreasing the accident rate. The researchers of the lab said that it is the first time in Korea that a self-driving car succeeded in driving on both the highway and city roads. Since some drivers drive rather aggressively, the researchers of the lab have stated that every trial is frightening. “Cutting in line is the scariest. Once, we dodged an accident by a mere two centimeters,” said Lee. After countless test trials, December 18th was their first attempt on the actual path from the Seoul Forest to the Yeongdong Bridge. The result was successful, and the car met all assessing criteria satisfactorily. It was the first time in Korea that a self-driving car succeeded in driving on both the highway and city roads. Lim and Lee have stated that despite their achievement, there is still a long way to go until the self-driving car becomes popular. There needs to be sufficient demonstration for all possible situations one might confront on the road, and 5G mobile telecommunication has a wide spectrum of possible usage. “So the self-driving car expects to take much time in becoming the norm,” said Lim, “but we'd say we are one step ahead than the others.” Lim Ji-woo email@example.com Photos by Kang Cho-hyun

- 2019.0107The Winners of the 2018 MBA Case Competition
Hosted by MTN and the Yonsei University Graduate School of Business, the first place winner for the 10th MBA Case Competition was team Illusion from the Hanyang University Master of Business Administration (MBA). They proposed a vision to create early on the components and the charging station for the future of hydrogen powered vehicles. Each year, a company is chosen to decide on a topic for that year. In the 2018 year, POSCO declared, “POSCO’s new undertaking project for the spread of future values and development of mutual interest” as the theme. From August 6th, in which the application for participation began, the topic of competition was already chosen for participants. The contest itself has the preliminaries and the final round. The preliminaries took place in October, and eight teams were chosen to compete in the finals. The final presentation date was November 17th, in which all the teams produced a powerpoint and prepared their presentions. The awards ceremony was held on November 29th. The members of team Illusion: (from left) Lee Jong-wook (Art, Culture, and Entertainment, Master’s program), Oh Jung-hyun (Business Management, Master’s program), Choi Chan-woo (Strategic Management, Master’s program) photographed on January 4th, 2019. Jeon Hack-hee, (Strategic Management and Venture, Master’s program) was not present in the photo. According to the latest update on the McKinsey Report, hydrogen powered cars that amount to $400,000 will be sold worldwide per annum by 2050. In this regard, team Illusion thought it would bring about a synergy effect for POSCO to produce components for hydrogen powered cars since they are already equipped with parts like battery or iron ore. Also, they believed that if POSCO could first create a movable charging station, then it would be possible to earn an enormous profit in the same sense that Rockefeller seized the gas station. Iron ore takes up about 60 percent of the total revenue for POSCO. However, due to the growing sharing economy like uber and car pool, not many cars are selling, and the amount of components needed to build a car has significantly decreased as green cars prevail. Therefore, POSCO also faces a business transfer to green cars. Hydrogen powered vehicles have more prospects than electric cars, according to team Illusion. Electric cars have been put to practical use already, and their fuel is eco-friendly, whereas hydrogen powered cars act as air purifiers, benefiting our environment. The eight teams that made it to the finals were given time to complement their research by absorbing the commentary from the judges. For team Illusion, the panel had commented on how there were too many broad suggestions for the company and lacked the logic behind why such a business strategy was to be fulfilled. Listening to and adjusting the shortcomings that the judges had pointed out made it possible for Hanyang University to win first place among the other prestigious schools. The award winners and participants of the 2018 MBA Case Competition held on November 29th, 2018 (Photo courtesy of Oh Jung-hyun) The interviewees had all agreed that teamwork was the main reason that their team was able to win first place at the 2018 MBA Case Competition. “Other than the perfect balance between us as a team, we correctly identified the business trends that companies were interested in and suggested a realistic idea for POSCO’s future oriented project.” Team Illusion was the last to present among the eight teams in the final round, and they said that they had a feeling that they would win first place after seeing the reactions from the judges from the previous presentations. The head of the department at POSCO, who was one of the judges, asked the team if there was a POSCO employee among the team members, emphasizing how difficult it was to figure out precisely what POSCO wanted to see, as team Illusion had done. The MBA Case Competition is one of the biggest contests for MBA students to participate in. Members of team Illusion recommended other MBA students to openly challenge themselves. Choi Chan-woo (Strategic Management, Master’s program) said that he learned more about his team members and was surprised by how they had creative new ideas and vision. For those who want to give it a shot at the competition, Lee Jong-wook (Art, Culture, and Entertainment, Master’s program) advised that since judges are mostly hands-on workers as well, that it would be important to know what is needed on a working-level and to be in their shoes when creating business plans for their company.

- 2019.0101[Saranghandae] Chinese Student Council at Department of Business Administration
Hanyang University (HYU), as a university soaring into the world, is made up of numerous international students who are not only experiencing Hanyang as exchange students, but also as degree seeking freshmen. Among these international students, Chinese students make up a high proportion. Of all the international students entering the Department of Business Administration, 90% are Chinese. These students also account for 25% of the whole department. Due to this large number, a student council for Chinese students was created in 2010 to ease the problems Chinese students face. We met seven students from this student council and asked them about their lives as students and council members. Student council? We’re here to help! Numerous international students face various difficulties when trying to live in a different culture. Their language barrier is only one of the problems they are faced with. Seven members of this student council – Ye Jie (4th year), Wu Chunnying (2nd year), Wang Jiang (1st year), Wang Yifei (1st year), Cui Xianji (2nd year), Wang Yujia (2nd year) and Du Chuanbin (1st year) – all majoring in Business Administration, gave us their individual stories of being part of the Chinese student council. Since 2010, the Chinese student council has been made to provide a welfare system for the Chinese international students facing hardships in their school lives. As the 8th student council this year, with Ye Jie leading them as president, there are 28 members making up four teams – the organization, administration, public relations, and planning teams. The student council helps Chinese students in their major with basic pre-semester information, both for academic and social purposes. The planning team first plans most of the council’s events, such as membership training, visiting enterprises and so on. The public relations team then sends out announcements through WeChat, the most famous messenger in China. They run two chat rooms, as they have so many people involved. The administration team takes care of the international students’ lounge, books, medicine, and even umbrella rentals, while the organization team works in coordination with the public relations team for all other matters. A year in the student council The student council’s year starts with inviting Chinese freshmen to their chat rooms before they officially enter the school. They hold an orientation for these students so that they can register for courses, have information pertinent to international students and receive help with academic obstacles. They explain graduation requirements, electronic attendance, and so on in Chinese so that they have a better understanding of their school before they enter. As the scale of the Chinese student council is the biggest in HYU, they are also the only department that hosts an orientation before students enter the university. Their membership training is also differentiated from other majors - not only within Chinese student councils, but also from Korean majors. The student council tries different activities within this membership training. They have visited a strawberry farm to make jam, played survival games in Gang-hwa Island, and gone to Everland, and visited the Incheon seashore. With 30 to 40 students, they have gone away for a night to do various activities, have barbeques and just to have fun. The Chinese students also visit various Korean enterprises. The administration team of the Department of Business Administration helps with organizing this event. The students and the administration team staff members guide around 80 students to these enterprises along with a cultural activity for two days. They have visited different corporations such as Kia, Hyundai, Hite and Paik Jong-won’s lunch box factories. They learn how these enterprises are run, and try out the products if they are related to food or drinks. On the second day, the students can experience cultural activities such as making Hanji, the Korean traditional paper, or visiting famous sites such as Cheonmundae, where our ancestors use to observe the stars. Lastly, they organize an alumni party twice a year – once in Korea and once in China. Current and former students get together for networking, which makes it a perfect chance for everyone to get along and make new relationships. They had their alumni party at the end of October this year, and the president of the student council and staff members from the administration office are planning to go to China next March. As a Chinese person living in Korea As international students themselves, each Chinese student council member had their own hardships and triumphs in Korea. Wang Yujia reminisced, “I didn’t know anyone when I first came to Korea. However, I made friends and families through this council and decided I should also take part in it. I also want to learn more Korean culture.” Cui Xianji also mentioned “I came to Korea relatively later than others. I had a lot of hardships in a new country with a different culture. However, I received a lot of help from the student council and decided that I could also help people through being a member myself.” The student council has become a way for Chinese students to get along and make valuable relationships, and the members of the student council are more than willing to make more of this happen. Ye Jie mentioned that there are quite a few students with whom they couldn’t get in touch before entrance, as some of them didn’t have WeChat accounts. However, now looking at these students making an account and socializing after attending the membership training, he reminisces and feels that their actions have been worthwhile. Unlike Korean student councils, the members of the Chinese student council have to take care of not only yearly events, but also come up with methods that can better help Chinese students overcome hardships related to cultural differences. Even though the number of international students is constantly increasing, the obstacles they have to face are still present. Cui Xianji explained, “I wish the prejudice towards Chinese would change. There are a lot of hardworking students, and they really work hard for their future.” Student councils that focus solely on helping international students should be more facilitated as we continue to welcome more and more international students. ▲ The Chinese student council members took a commemorative photo when visiting a corporation. ▲ They are enjoying the various activities of Korean farms. ▲ 2018 Chinese students’ Membership Training By On Jung-yun (Student Reporter) email@example.com
- 2018.1121Hanyang University ranked 25th in the QS Asian University Rankings and claimed 5th in the domestic universities
Hanyang University was the 25th ranked university in the “2018 Chosun Ilbo & the QS Asian University Rankings,” climbing 5 ranks compared to last year's performance. The domestic universities that placed within the 30th rankings in Asia were Seoul National University (10th), Korea University (12th), Sungkyunkwan (15th), Yonsei University (17th), and Hanyang University (25th), which was ranked fifth in the domestic universities category. ▲ Rankings of the “2018 Chosun Ilbo & QS Asian University Rankings” (Image = capture from QS website) In collaboration with QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), a global university evaluation facility in the UK, the Chosun Ilbo evaluated 503 universities in 17 countries in Asia and announced the evaluation results on the 23rd of October.

- 2018.11212018 JoongAng Ilbo University Rankings: Seoul Ranked 3rd · ERICA 9th
Hanyang University's Seoul Campus was ranked 3rd while the ERICA Campus was ranked 9th in last year's JoongAng Ilbo’s comprehensive university rankings for 2018. This year, Hanyang is the only university to have two campuses ranked in the top 10 for four consecutive years from the evaluation. On October 29, the JoongAng Ilbo released the results of the ‘Comprehensive Evaluation,’ which assessed all universities on a common basis and a ‘Department Evaluation’ by using indicators according to the characteristics of each academic category. The comprehensive evaluation was conducted for 57 universities with four or more departments, including the Humanities, Sociology, the Natural Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, and the Arts. The department evaluations were conducted in four categories: the Humanities, Social Science, Natural Science, and Engineering. This year's evaluation was conducted from 32 criteria (total 300 points) in four categories: a professor’s research (10 criteria, 100 points), educational conditions (12 criteria, 100 points), student education and performance (6 criteria · 70 points), and reputation (four criteria and total 300 points). The Seoul Campus ranked 1st in ‘student education and achievement’ (54 points), 3rd in ‘professor research’ (72 points), 4th in ‘educational conditions’ (62 points), and 5th in ‘reputation’ (26 points) category. In total, the results have led Hanyang to rank 3rd with 214 points. Hanyang has also stood out in terms of ‘student education and achievement,’ by presenting high employment rates (4th in the net employment rate and 6th in the maintenance rate) as well as having a good score in the dropout rate (5th). In addition, as a college advocating the founding philosophy of the ‘practice of knowledge,’ the third largest revenue was obtained by transferring technology to companies. According to an official from Hanyang, "The Seoul campus recorded 4th place in 'international research papers' and 'professor research,’ for professors publishing a large number of internationally recognized papers. Also, the second rank reflects the fact that internationalization-related indicators are excellent, and the quality of international students is high because of the high percentage of foreign students qualified for language proficiency," the official added. The ERICA Campus ranked 6th in ‘student education and achievement’ (50 points), 10th in ‘professor research’ (61 points), 14th in "educational conditions’ (50 points), and 16th in ‘reputation’ (19 points). Overall, the ERICA Campus ranked 9th with a total of 180 points. It also displayed its strength in the ‘Industry-Academic Cooperation.’ In addition, it ranked 1st in ‘the ratio of participation in on-the-job training,’ 2nd in ‘revenue of industry-academic cooperation per science-technology professors,’ and 5th in the ‘graduate students’ start-up activities.’ According to Vice President Kim Woo-seung of ERICA, "We have been rapidly accepting requests from the field through industry cooperation and creating an industry-friendly system that is more sustainable than other universities." He went on to further explain that they had also prepared a large-scale start-up space by referring to prestigious overseas universities. Meanwhile, the Seoul Campus was ranked 5th in the ‘reputation’ category, which surveyed 550 personnel managers from companies and public institutions as well as 550 high school teachers. Also, the campus was ranked within the top-ten positions upon the four questions: ‘the most desirable new recruits,’ ‘being most likely to be recommended to apply,’ ‘the greatest potential to grow,’ and the ‘university with a high contribution to the national and local community.’ Among non-Seoul universities, the ERICA Campus, Inha University, and Busan National University recorded the top three spots. SNU (242 points) tops the rankings again this year in the overall evaluation for this year. Subsequently, the following universities are listed in the top-ten positions: Sungkyunkwan University (222 points), Hanyang University, Seoul Campus (214 points), Korea University and Yonsei University (206 points), Kyung Hee University (188 points), and Ewha Womans University (181 points). The 2018 JoongAng Ilbo university assessment was conducted in four categories: Humanities, Social Science, Natural Science, and Engineering. Only universities that account for a certain percentage or number of students in each department were eligible (Humanities · Natural Science 10%, Social Science ·Engineering 20% / Humanities 1000, Social Science 2000, Natural Science 1500, and Engineering 2500 students). The Seoul Campus ranked 2nd in the ‘Humanities’ (174 points), 4th (173 points) in Social Science, 6th in Natural Science (195 points), and 4th in Engineering (195 points). The ERICA Campus ranked 16th (126 points) in ‘Humanities,’ 19th (134 points) in Social Science, and 13th (161 points) in 'Engineering.' ▶ The "2018 JoongAng Ilbo University Evaluation" shortcut 1 (click) ▶ The "2018 JoongAng Ilbo University Evaluation" shortcut 2 (click)
