KAIST Graduate School of Finance (KGSF) conducts a follow-up survey for international alumni every year to gather feedback and learn what our alumni are doing after leaving KAIST. Numerous alumni participated in the survey this year helping us improve the quality of the program and alumni services. We are pleased to share the highlights with you:

?Response Rate
A total 29 people completed the questionnaires, a response rate of 43%.


?Survey Findings



According to the survey results, several of our alumni expressed that they successfully applied what they learned in KAIST to the real world.

Joseph Mwaura Kamau (FMBA 2014, The National Treasury, Kenya) learned about financial statement analysis at KAIST. He has applied this knowledge when approving and analyzing state corporations funding requests from the National Treasury. He said that all the recommendations he has made with his team have been adopted by the parliament and have been implemented or incorporated in financial regulations.

Nakitende Anna (FMBA 2014, Bank of Uganda) learned about capital budgeting in the corporate finance class at KAIST. This enabled her to pragmatically show management, and enable her to make an informed decision at the moment of purchasing new machines for the organization.

These alumni have also been trying to share their knowledge within their organizations.

Chukwu Ada Priscilla (FMBA 2014, Federal Ministry of Finance, Nigeria) presented her research paper on Oil Price to her department. Additionally, she shared an essay with her Ministry about her academic and non-academic Korean experience.

Nurbek Darvishev (FMBA 2013, Uzbekistan Fund for Reconstruction and Development) said, “Our team studied the Korean budget system and the level of subsidies of regions and looked for patterns and solutions which we could also apply in our national budget system.” With his Korean friend's support, he was able to obtain the most updated budget data. By sharing this data, the officials from Ministry of Finance were able to make tweaks and make corrections to their observations, which resulted in more accuracy. 

We also gathered comments and ideas for the alumni services in the survey. Our alumni want to be engaged more both online and offline in order to boost knowledge sharing and networking. KGSF will figure out the best way to ensure the accomplishment of their suggestions. 

We appreciate the alumni who took the time to share their thoughts. KGSF will use the feedback from alumni to improve the program and make it better every year.
