History

Seoul National University's College of Business Administration was founded in 1946 as Seoul National University's College of Commerce. During that time, the College of Commerce was divided into the Department of Commerce and the Department of Economics. The College of Business Administration was officially founded in 1962 and operated alongside the College of Commerce until amendments in the university's constitution combined the two colleges. Coinciding with the university's move to the Gwanak Campus in 1975, generational and national demands led to the separation of the College of Business Administration. This became the starting point for the College of Business Administration's establishment the foundation of Korea’s management education and research.
