Byung-Heun Ko(entering class of 1964), chairman of Kumbi corporation gave the commencement address at the ceremony. In his commencement speech, Byung-Heun Ko (entering class of 1964), chairman of Kumbi Corporation, asked graduates to do three things. First, lead their lives with a precious meeting. Because the people with whom they meet will determine their views of life, values, and the meaning of life, they should build good relationships through being good persons. Second, he urged them to immerse themselves in living their lives passionately, for without passion life is worthless. Finally, he told them, develop an enjoyment of art because music, literature, and art add to the happiness of a life well lived. Kyung-Bae Suh, chairman of YSB’s alumni association, and Do Weon Seol, president of the MBA alumni association, also attended.

Graduation ceremonies at YSB have several characteristics, the first of which is a special message from an invited speaker whose remarks will also include congratulations for the graduates. The valedictorian’s response follows. A “class gift” ceremony, representing a continuum reaching from alumni to incoming freshmen, is an integral part of the program. Representative alumni celebrate the graduates, who in turn welcome the entering freshman class, including presentation of a souvenir gift to the incoming class.
