The 5th Citi-KOSBI Women Entrepreneurship Academy (WEA) Participants Complete Courses
SEOUL--(Korea Newswire) July 10, 2012 -- Citibank Korea (CEO Yung-Ku Ha, www.citibank.co.kr) and the Korea Small Business Institute (KOSBI) (President Dong-Sun Kim, www.kosbi.re.kr) jointly held a course completion ceremony for the 5h Citi-KOSBI Women Entrepreneurship Academy (WEA) on July 10, 2012 at the 1st meeting room of Korea Federation of Small and Medium Business Bldg. in Yoido, Seoul.

The WEA course was first introduced in April 2009 as part of the Women-led Enterprise Competitiveness Enhancement Program that has been in place since 2008 sponsored by the Citi Foundation, with a goal of identifying role models for the Korean women SME entrepreneurs and helping them develop their competitive edge. 213 women CEOs and middle managers of SMEs completed the program so far, including the 5th course participants. The 5th Citi-KOSBI WEA courses were provided every Tuesday starting from April 3 for 14 weeks. Citibank Korea sponsored their tuitions worth of 3 million won each.

The 5th WEA offered online courses (www.citikosbi.net) for the first time to allow broader access to the program. Those who could not attend the classroom lecture or live in non-Seoul Metropolitan areas could still take classes.

“The knowledge I learned from the course was really useful in doing my job at work. It was also really a valuable time that I could network with other women CEOs and middle managers,” commented CEO Dong-Sook Shin of Hyeonwon Bike at the ceremony who took the 5th WEA.

KOSBI President Dong-Sun Kim said at the ceremony, “I am sure that WEA must be a good opportunity for women SME businesswomen to gain real world knowledge and know-how. I also hope that this Academy will also help women SEM owners and managers network with each other to cooperate on further business opportunities.” SEVP Myung-Ok Kim of Citibank Korea remarked, “I hope you will leverage on knowledge and human network gained from the program in taking your business to the next level.” She also added, “You can contribute to enhancing our national competitiveness by increasing sales revenues of your business and creating more jobs.”
