[Performance]Four Graduates of Hanyang University are Amongst the 70 New Law School Prosecutors for 2020

Among the 70 new prosecutors in 2020, four were undergraduate students from Hanyang University, placing Hanyang as the sixth-highest among other Korean universities, and five were graduate students from Hanyang University’s School of Law, the fifth-highest amongst other domestic law schools. On May 11th, the Ministry of Justice newly appointed 70 people who passed the 9th bar exam from the School of Law as prosecutors. This year marks the first time that more than 70 law school graduates-turned prosecutors have been newly appointed since 2012 when 42 people passed the first bar exam. This is due to the sharp decrease in the number of graduates from the Judicial Research and Training Institute. According to The Law Journal on the 18th, which published an analysis regarding the newly picked prosecutors, Seoul National University and Yonsei University had the largest number with 13, followed by Korea University with 12. Sungkyunkwan University and Ewha Woman's University were tied at 4th with five students each. Hanyang University and Sogang University tied for sixth with four students each. Also, after analyzing the newly appointed prosecutors coming from law schools, Pusan National University’s School of Law topped the list with nine students. Pusan National University’s School of Law ranked ninth with only two students last year but jumped to first place this year. Korea University’s School of Law (8 students) and Sungkyunkwan University’s School of Law (7 students) took the top three spots. Hanyang University’s School of Law had only three students appointed last year, but as the number increased to five this year, it rose to a joint fifth place with Kyung Hee University’s School of Law. Out of the 70 newly hired prosecutors, 41 (58.6%) were women, a sharp increase from last year (38.1%, 21 people). By age group, those who were in the 30-31 year-old group accounted for the largest portion with 27.1%, followed by the 28-29 year-old group with 25.6%, and the 32-33 year-old group with 15.7%. There were 22 (31.4%) prosecutors that majored in law for their undergraduate degree, while more than 60% were non-law majors. On the other hand, the Ministry of Justice announced that it had selected qualified candidates based on the results of personality tests, third-phase competency evaluations, and organizational competency evaluations in order to verify the candidates' in-depth public ethics, ethical awareness, balanced perspective and human rights awareness through document screening and working-level records in order to verify their academic performance and professionalism. The newly appointed prosecutors will receive intensive and substantial training such as but not limited to theory and practice of criminal law, prosecution investigation, lectures on investigative techniques, evaluation of working records, ethics education specifically for prosecutors, and working-level settlement of the frontline office (2 months), and will then carry out their duties as prosecutors.

[Performance]39 Hanyang Alumni are Executives at Samsung Electronics for 2020 Q1, Sixth Largest Among Domestic Universities

According to a quarterly report that was submitted by Samsung Electronics to the Financial Supervisory Service for the first quarter of this year, 39 Samsung Electronics executives graduated from Hanyang University, making Hanyang University graduates the sixth-largest group of executives amongst other alumni from domestic universities. The executives from this conglomerate are commonly referred to as "stars." This is because the average annual salary of executives at Samsung Electronics is over 600 million won, and with a total number of 1,051 executives, they only make up 0.98% of all the executives and staff members. The average salary of registered executives is 3 billion won, and non-registered executives’ salary is 600 million won, which is slightly less than six times the average annual salary of Samsung Electronics employees (188 million won) who have worked for at least 12 years on average. Based on their academic backgrounds including master’s and doctoral degrees, Seoul National University had the largest number of alumni with 104 executives. This was followed by KAIST (95 executives), Yonsei University (64 executives), Korea University (58 executives), and Sungkyunkwan University (52 executives). There was a total of 39 alumni from Hanyang University, helping the university rank 6th for the largest number of alumni to become Samsung Electronics executives. Although this is not the highest level of education he acquired, Kim Hyun-suk, who graduated from the Department of Electronic Engineering, is the CEO and holds the highest executive position amongst all graduates of Hanyang University. Additionally, Um Dae-hyun, an alumnus from the School of Law (Vice President), Jang Si-ho (Vice President), and Choi Gil-hyun (Executive Director) were listed as non-registered executives. Most of the executives from Samsung are in their 50s, with a total of 596 executive board members. However, the number of young executives in their 40s are increasing rapidly as Samsung Electronics has been advocating for a “young Samsung” over the last 10 years. The number of executives in their 40s is 41.4%, which is slightly higher than the average 18.6% of executives in their 40s at the other top 30 companies. The number of female executives stands at 55, accounting for 5.2% of the total number of executives. Earlier this year, 166 executives were promoted amongst Samsung Electronics’ personnel. On the other hand, 125 existing executives, including two presidents, 13 vice presidents, 14 executive directors, and 39 directors, left Samsung Electronics, with some moving to subsidiary companies.
