  • Academics

    Credit information for KFBS students

    The university offers a large number of courses taught in English in major functional areas including Accounting, Finance, International Business, and Marketing. UNC students typically take 15 credit hours and enjoy a small class size with most of the classes being less than 35 students per class.

    Courses taken at the Korea University Business School will transfer back to UNC Pass/Fail. Achieving a grade of C or above will transfer back to UNC as a pass course, which will not affect UNC GPA. Students who receive any grade under C will fail the course and an F grade will transfer back to UNC, which will affect their UNC GPA. Though transfer credit for this program is Pass/Fail, future employers and graduate schools will also look at the KUBS transcript, so grades are important.

    Students participating on this program will transfer back 3 UNC credits for every 3 credit course at KUBS, and are expected to take either four or five courses worth 3 credits each during the semester. A student who earns a C or above in all courses will receive a total of 12-15 UNC credits for their semester abroad.

    This program also fulfills Experiential Education and you will earn 5 points towards the Kenan-Flagler Global Inclusive Leadership Initiative.« PrevNext »
