Nearly 1 in 4 Korean University Presidents are SNU Alumni

According to a survey by Edaily of 189 4-year Korean university presidents, a 62-year-old male who went to SNU for undergraduate studies and received his Ph.D. degree abroad served as a model figure. Among the 189 presidents surveyed, 24.3% were SNU alumni, and 21.6% of universities had presidents who were graduates of their own school. Yonsei University and Korea University each produced 14 university presidents, while 46.5% received Ph.D. degrees from foreign universities. Woosong University was the only Korean university to appoint a foreigner as its president.
