Hanyang University stands out among the top 15 Universities after analyzing "Student startup and startup support status" and "Startup education application status" as announced by the Academy Information (대학알리미) on June 30. In addition to the largest number of student start-up companies this year as well as the previous year, the number of start-up lectures was overwhelmingly high.

Hanyang University had the most student startup businesses, which indicates the results of startup education. Hanyang University had 43 student startup founders that started 42 businesses last year and reached 500 million won in sales with about 100 million won in capital. This is about 2.6 times more business startups compared to the average number, since the top 15 universities’ average is 18.3 students starting 16.1 businesses per university. This shows the reason why Hanyang University holds such a high reputation as a cradle of CEO training.

Hanyang University, whose startup founder number was the highest, also ranked first in  number of startup lectures. Hanyang University has 512 startup lectures, which is more than three times higher than that of Kyunghee University (163 lectures) which ranked second. The increased rate of theory-based lectures was especially high, with 493 lectures, along with 19 practice-based lectures. Hanyang University showed a wide increase in the number of lectures with 67 lectures in 2016, 55 lectures in 2017, 262 lectures in 2018, which leaped once again in 2019. The average number of startup lectures of the top 15 universities is 100.1.

Startups founded through extracurricular activities were also overwhelmingly high from Hanyang University. Hanyang University showed a huge majority in startup clubs and startup contests, excluding the startup camp. Last year’s number of startup clubs was 164, which was more than double that of Konkuk University and Korea University (78 clubs) which were ranked second. As for startup contests, Hanyang University held the largest number of start-up competitions with 13 sessions and second largest number of start-up camps(18 times) after Dongguk University(37 times).
