Kim Hyo-joon, chairman of BMW Group Korea, donated 500 million won in scholarship funds to Hanyang University on March 23rd. The scholarship donated by Chairman Kim will be used mainly for Hanyang students from socially disadvantaged classes.

Hanyang University also opened the BMW CAD / CAE Laboratory at the Chung Mong-koo Automotive Research Center on the Seoul Campus in honor of Chairman Kim, who is well-versed in the development of the automobile industry. In response to the fourth industrial revolution, Chairman Kim and Hanyang University joined forces to respond to the new era through the strengthening of computer application design and engineering education, which are both essential for developing future automotive technologies.
“We hope to support young people who will lead the future of our country and help society. We also wish that the students who want to learn will be able to concentrate on their studies without any financial burden," Kim said at the ceremony.

Chairman Kim Hyo-jun joined BMW Korea as a finance expert in 1995 and established the first local subsidiary of an imported car company. After serving as vice president in 1998, he became president of BMW Korea in 2000 and has been chairman of BMW Korea since January of this year.

President of Hanyang University Lee Young-moo said, “We appreciate Chairman Kim's contribution to the development of the university and to Korean society, and we will do our best to help our students study without any difficulties.”
