Kim Taehyung (V) and Park Jimin, vocalists from K-pop band BTS, graduated from Global Cyber University in August 2020. The Korean superstars have been conferred with the ‘President’s Award’ at the Class of 2020’s virtual graduation ceremony for being influential, global role models.
Jimin and V graduated from the university as Broadcasting and Entertainment majors before enrolling in an MBA program at Hanyang Cyber University in September, reported Koreaboo.
“As a model citizen who takes the lead in demonstrating the foundation of our school’s founding philosophy of cultivating global talent, (the recipient) demonstrates a positive influence and communication that extends beyond K-Pop, delivering the value of symbiosis required by the global era. Therefore, we are bestowing this award in the hopes the recipients will make even greater contributions to the world and society” Global Cyber University said.
