[Performance]Hanyang University Had the 4th Highest Number of Students Pass the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam

On June 11, the University News Network announced the status of the universities with the highest rate of students passing the 2019 Tax Accountant Exam. From Hanyang University, 25 students passed the 1st exam while 25 students passed the 2nd exam. While these student statistics have been announced over the years, this is the first time the numbers of examinees from each university have been specified. Hanyang University's ratio of successful applicants for the 1st exam was 16.9% (25 people / 148 people), and on the 2nd exam it was 32.3% (77 people / 239 people). The number of successful applicants by univeristy data was provided by the Human Resources Development Service of Korea through information gathered during the exam application process when applicants had to enter which school they were from. The Tax Accountant Exam, just like all the other exams for specialized jobs in Korea, requires a 1st and 2nd exam. Both the 1st and 2nd exams use an absolute scale system, where the applicants must get at least an average of 60 points, and 40 points for each subject. However, while the 1st exam can be passed according to the absolute scale system because usually there are fewer successful candidates than the fixed minimum number for the final selection, there is quite a large number of people that still pass the test despite receiving disqualifying scores. Additionally,there has been an issue with the 2nd exam being insufficient to judge the quality of universities. This is because of the fact that the majority of applicants that are taking the 2nd exam graduated a long time ago. Considering this fact, it can be said that the 1st exam is a better index to measure the effectiveness of the universities. ▲ [Contributed by] 2020. 6. 11th University News Network Article Last year, the Human Resources Development Service of Korea announced the list of 37 universities that have had the most people pass the exam during the past 10 years, from 2009 to 2018. Including the 56th exam that was conducted in 2019 and having 11 years as its basis, the University of Seoul has the highest number of successful applicants, reaching the number 357.

[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]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 global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[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.

[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.
