[Performance]Hyundai Management Announces Hanyang University Ranks 4th Among Universities with the Top 100 CEOs in 2020

According to a survey taken on May 20 of 127 CEOs of the top 100 companies in sales by Hyundai Management, a management journal, the number of CEOs from Hanyang University was the fourth largest. The average age of the top 100 CEOs in Korea is 59. The average length of time a CEO serves in a company is 26.5 years, with it taking 20.7 years to become a CEO. The average year was 23 until 2018, but it decreased to 21.7 last year, and went down another year this year. The average tenure of CEOs is also in decline, with 29.8 years in 2017, 29.6 years in 2018, 27.4 years in 2019, and 26.5 years in 2020. Hanyang University ranked fourth with 6.3% of the CEOs. Seoul National University ranked highest with 26%, followed by Korea University (15.7%), and Yonsei University (14.2%). Additionally, the commercial economy sector (45.2%) and social sciences sector (6.5%) were higher than the natural sciences and engineering sector (41.1%). Last year’s ratio was also higher in the commercial economy sector than the natural sciences and engineering sector by 9.8%, thus the gap widened. This reflects a trend that businesses are focusing more on management rationalization rather than technology development. Meanwhile, according to the Economist report on May 25 of 134 CEOs of the top 100 companies, CEOs from Hanyang University were the fifth largest with eight people. Seoul National University ranked first with 21.6%, followed by Korea University (11.9%), and Yonsei University (9%). Sungkyunkwan University ranked fourth with nine people (6.7%), which was a slight increase from the Hyundai Management report (3.8%). Those in their 50s and 60s accounted for 76.3% of the total. There were 10 people over 70s, and nine people in their 30s~40s, which was smaller than the number of people in over 70s. By major, 32 people graduated from the Department of Business Administration, accounting for a quarter of the total. The total number of graduates of business-related majors such as commercial science and accounting is 37 people. Global News Team Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[Performance]118 Hanyang University Students Pass the 2020 CPA Exam During its 1st Testing Window

According to the University News Network, Hanyang University has been ranked the 6th highest in terms of the number of successful candidates that passed the CPA exam during its first testing window from the university. There is a total of 118 candidates who passed the exam from Hanyang University’s Seoul campus. In 2017, Hanyang University had 83 successful candidates, 93 in 2018, and 105 in 2019. With 118 successful candidates in 2020, the university is showing a continuous incline in its number of successful candidates who pass the CPA exam during its first testing window for four consecutive years. Amongst the domestic universities, only Hanyang University and Korea University has been showing an incline in the number of students who passed the exam over four consecutive years. This year, there were 240 successful candidates from Korea University, who also had the greatest number of candidates that passed, with Sungkyunkwan University and Yonsei University right below them. Ewha Woman’s University marked an end to the Top 10 list with 78 passing candidates, and the Top 10 list released by the University News Network consisted mostly of major universities in Seoul. Out of the 9054 applicants, there were 2201 successful candidates who had passed the exam during its first testing window, with a 4.1:1 competition rate. The number of applicants had increased by 542 compared to the previous year, but its competition rate was somewhat lower as the number of successful applicants expanded by 193 people. 2 years ago, the government stated that it will gradually expand the number of successful CPA exam applicants, saying that there is a need for more accountants. Because of this, this year’s CPA exam’s minimum number of applicants who are expected to pass during its second testing window are 1100 people, which is 100 more compared to last year. Amongst the number of applicants who had passed, there were mostly university-enrolled students with 64.5%, and 25% were university graduates. This proves that out of the 10 successful candidates who had passed the CPA exam during its first testing window, 9 were very close to stepping out of their university gates and into society. Amongst the university majors, there was an overwhelming number of applicants who held business-related majors. This is because those who graduated with business degrees have strengths in certain test sections, such as but not limited to business administration, economic principles, commercial law, and accounting. As many as 77.8% of those who had passed the exam were from business-related majors. Those who passed the exam during its 1st testing window are aiming to become the final successful candidates of the CPA exam after its 2nd testing window that is planned to take place from June 27th to the 28th. Test applications will be accepted from May 14th to the 26th, and the final successful candidates will be announced on August 28th. This year, a total of 3,519 applicants are expected to take the exam during its second testing window, including those who had passed the first testing window and those who suspended. Meanwhile, Hanyang University operates a CPA exam class for those who pass the exam during its first testing window, for those who pass the class entrance exam that takes place every semester, and also for those who obtain excellent grades in the class’ mock exams. Admitted students will be exempted from dormitory fees and will be provided with scholarships and tuition fees. Hanyang University has had 275 students who had successfully passed the exam over the recent five years, with an average of 55 students every year, and 60 students last year. This ranks the university in 7th place for the number of successful applicants it had produced amongst all universities in South Korea. Global News Team Translated by: Lee Jung-joo

[Performance]Hanyang University Professors Sun Yang-kook and Kim Gi-hyun Selected as the 2019 World’s Top 1% Researchers

6,216 of the world’s 1% researchers with the largest number of paper citation counts of 2019 were announced. Among them, 45 Koreans were selected, including Hanyang professor Sun Yang-kook(Department of Energy Engineering) and Kim Gi-hyun (Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.) On November 20th, Clarivate Analytics, a global academic information company, announced a total of 6,216 researchers (including the selection of duplicates in more than two categories) from 60 countries in 21 categories in the world through its report "Highly Cited Research (HCR).” The announcement has been ongoing for six years now. Americans accounted for the largest portion of the total 6,216 chosen, with 2,737 researcher(44%). There are 203 researchers from Harvard and 103 from Stanford. China followed with accounting for 636 researchers, which is a rise of 32 percent from 482 last year. South Korea had the 19th largest number with 45 researchers. This figure is a decrease of 13 researchers from 58 researchers of last year. 9 researchers were affiliated to Seoul National University which had the largest number in the country. The actual number of Korean researchers were 39 after excluding foreign professors and researchers who were double-selected two or more times. Of the two professors at Hanyang University, professor Sun Yang-kook is included in the material science field, while professor Kim Gi-hyun is included in the environmental and ecological field. Professor Sun Yang-kook already had his name on the list for 4 years since 2016, and professor Kim Gi-hyun newly registered his name on the list. A total of 12 professors were named for the first time this year among the 45 Koreans announced. ▲ Hanyang University Department of Energy Engineering professor Sun Yang-kook Professor Sun Yang-kook has been studying lithium-ion batteries for more than 20 years, which are used as energy storage for portable electronic devices and electric vehicles. Professor Sun's main research area is lithium-ion battery anode material, and professor Sun emphasizes that through his anode material research, he can develop economical and large-capacity batteries and ultimately speed up commercialization of electric vehicles by reducing production costs of electric vehicles. One of the most representative research findings by Professor Sun is the ‘concentration gradient’ anode material, which varies the concentration of the constituent material according to its location in one anode particle. In other words, the material has a higher content of nickel expressing high energy density in the center of a particle, and it is a material that increases stability as it becomes more into the surface as content of manganese becomes higher. This unique design has created a safe, long-lasting battery with large capacity. After developing 'core-shell' type concentration gradient anode material for the first time in 2005, it has developed 4G concentration gradient anode material through 10 years of research and succeeded in commercializing it by applying the material to Kia Motors' Niro EV, which was released in 2018. Professor Sun's constant research on battery anode materials was linked to 599 SCI-level papers and 456 domestic and foreign patents as of 1919. It was selected as the ‘17 Scientists Close to the Nobel Prize’ by the Korea Research Foundation in 2019 and was also selected as a stone academy member of the Electrochemical Society. ▲ Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering professor Kim Gi-hyun is receiving the certificate at the 2019 HCR Awards hosted on December 3rd. Professor Kim Gi-hyun has developed new materials related to improving the environmental analysis system that controls and manages VOCs (Volatile Air Pollutants) and odors. Benzene and formaldehyde are types of VOCs that are class one carcinogens produced in real life from driving, smoking, and cooking. Most of the current air cleaning technology is specialized in dust removal, which has limitations in detecting and removing such carcinogens. Professor Kim developed a metal organic framework (MOF), which combines metal with carbon organic matter, and succeeded in adsorption and removal of such harmful substances. It also proposed a new air quality diagnostic method that analyzes 22 types of odorous substances designated by the Ministry of Environment at the same time by developing a heat desorption-based pretreatment technology that effectively concentrates harmful substances and other samples. Professor Kim was also selected as the ‘national great scholar’ for his contribution to deploy a system analysis of harmful heavy metals in the atmosphere. His analysis system is widely used not only in research labs but also in industrial sites as it can be used in many areas such as bird flu syndrome, harmful substances from electronic cigarettes, and automobile odor diagnosis. Meanwhile, the methodology used by Clarivate Analytics (YSE:CCC; CCC.WS / the former Thomson Reuters Intellectual Property Science Division) to select influential HCR researchers is based on the analysis carried out by the Web of Science Group's Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) data experts and metrology experts. ISI is a university established within the Web of Science Group to win the reputation of Eugene Garfield, the founder of the prestigious research journal SCI, and has worked closely with universities, businesses and public institutions around the world every year announcing HCRs and Nobel Prize-winning forecasting programs.

The system is developed and applied for the first time by a domestic university to diagnose ‘employment readiness’ and provide information such as how to be prepared to find a job and what level has it reached. It stressed that the database and recruitment information of some 100,000 companies, as well as all job information of seniors, including post-employment thoughts and application letters, are covered. This year, it also emphasized that it is providing personalized solutions based on big data that have been collected. Although the overall detailed scores and other details have yet to be disclosed, Hanyang University scored 83.3 points in education, the highest among the 10 best universities. The infrastructure score was also 81.9 points, the highest after Sunmoon University and Korea Advanced Institute of Technology and Education. The Youth Dream University, which first started the announcement in 2013, had made the announcement every year until 2015, but later changed to a biennial one, followed by one in 2017. Therefore, it is the fifth time this year. No university has been named the best university for five consecutive times. The Dong-A Ilbo said the assessment was conducted through the ‘university allimi,’ public information of 224 four-year universities nationwide and focused on how actively universities support students' employment and start-ups and how efficiently they operate career guidance systems. The evaluation index is comprised of four areas: infrastructure, education, service, and network, and all 17 index scores that are subdivided were added together to calculate a total score of 1,000 points. In particular, the second-phase assessment was conducted in-depth on the students and a satisfaction survey was conducted to reflect the opinions of the actual students.
