Sungkyunkwan University ranked 66th on a list of the top 100 global full-time MBA programs released by the Financial Times on Monday. Sungkyunkwan is the only Korean university in the top 100 for 2012.
The rank was the highest the British daily has given to a Korean full-time MBA program since it started the rankings in 1999, according to Sungkyunkwan.

Sungkyunkwan was awarded points for operating annual exchange programs with the world's top business schools such as MIT, the university said.
It also scored high overall in the category of alumni career progress based on evaluations of job placement, salary and promotion after fishing the program.
Stanford University topped the list, followed by Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania.
