SolBridge International School of Business is a private AACSB accredited business school[1] in Daejeon, South Korea, established by Woosong University[2] in March 2007.[3]

About Solbridge[edit]

The school focuses on business in Asia while remaining aware of business implications for government and society. The business program focuses on finance, logistics, marketing and technology transfer. SolBridge International School of Business awards both undergraduate major in business (BBA) and MBA degrees.

John E. Endicott, who serves as its Vice Chancellor, and now, President of Woosong University,[4][5] is known for his work on nuclear nonproliferation (for which he was nominated for the Nobel Prize[6][7]).

SolBridge is the first business school in Korea with an international faculty and student body[8] (international students make-up 60 to 80% of each class[1][9]). All courses are taught in English[10] following an American curriculum model. SolBridge is one of Korea's 14 universities that have been accredited by the AACSB board of executives. SolBridge is the youngest business school in AACSB's history to receive this accreditation, receiving the accreditation just 7 years after establishment.

Partnerships exist with Georgia Institute of Technology, Beijing Foreign Studies University[11] and Meiji University (Japan) Graduate School of Business Administration.[12]
