SUNY Korea Stony Brook Students Listening to a Class Lecture
Graduates of SUNY Korea are successfully obtaining employment at global companies and prestigious graduate schools. SUNY Korea is the first Korean campus established among prestigious overseas universities, and is recognized as one of the excellent global campus.
According to SUNY Korea, Ji-Hyun Baek, a Mechanical Engineering graduate from Stony Brook University, joined Meta, a company that operates the world's largest social media platform Facebook. Furthermore, Computer Science graduate Yoo-Jung Shin joined LG Energy Solution U.S. subsidiary, Applied Mathematics and Statistics graduate Seung-Won Byun joined Samjeong KPMG, Technology and Society graduate Ji-Hun Gwak joined Deloitte Anjin LLC, Business Management graduate Ha-Young Ji joined Posco International America Corporation, and Fashion Technology University (FIT) graduate Sang-Hoon Kwak joined the global online luxury platform Tren:be. Technology and Society graduate Sung-Hwan Kim got accepted to Stanford Graduate school.
SUNY Korea indicated the reason for the success of graduates in a series of global companies are △ Having the same curriculum as the New York campus in the United States △ Providing a unique interdisciplinary program to strengthen global capabilities △ Forming a practical education related to high-tech industries required by global companies. From its inception, SUNY Korea has been providing a curriculum that uses creativity and critical thinking skills required by the industry, and global-level lectures that can cultivate problem-solving skills and acquire knowledge that is immediately applicable to hands-on experience.
SUNY Korea is an expansion campus of the United States’ Stony Brook University and Fashion Institute of Technology, offering the same curriculum as the New York campus in the United States, allowing students to experience the best degree programs in the United States. Stony Brook University is recognized as a science-oriented research university, ranking first among the public universities in New York State in last year's US News & World Report.
In addition, students from Stony Brook University at SUNY Korea take classes with students on the New York campus for one year during their studies. Students from the Fashion Institute of Technology can also pursue a bachelor's degree in New York or Milan after a two-year associate graduate degree in Korea.
Seung-Won Byun, who is working at Samjeong KPMG after graduating from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at SUNY Korea, said, “I was able to broaden my perspective of seeing the world by communicating with friends from various nationalities that I met on and off the campus in New York Campus. I was also able to get a job where I wanted with various experiences, career courses, and job counseling programs in school".
Sang-Hoon Kwak, who graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology, also known as the MIT of the fashion industry, is working at the global online luxury platform "Tren:be" and said that he gained a wide view of the global market through this practical interdisciplinary program in university.
Sung-Hwan Kim, who got accepted to Stanford Graduate School said, “The practical and professional curriculum of SUNY Korea gave me a broader perspective on the field of energy technology, which led me to apply to graduate school.”
Arthur H. Lee, President of the State University of New York - Korea, said, "SUNY Korea offers all lectures in English and provides the same curriculum as the New York campus in the United States. To foster talented people who can be active in the global society, various opportunities are provided to acquire global capabilities and knowledge at the same time. I think these efforts have paid off and our graduates are receiving good reviews from global companies".
Meanwhile, SUNY Korea, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year, is the first U.S. university in Korea to host and operate promising departments from Stony Brook University (SBU), the world's most prestigious university among 64 state universities in New York, and Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT), a world-renowned fashion university. Stony Brook University has six departments: Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Technology and Society, and Business Management. The Fashion Institute of Technology has two departments: Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management.
