What is an Honorary Doctorate Degree?
In the world of academics, a doctorate degree (PhD) is the utmost highest recognition you can achieve. However, it is incredibly challenging to reach such honor, and it usually takes years with many sacrifices for students to achieve the title.
On the other hand, an honorary doctorate degree is when someone receives the above PhD title without completing the standard requirements due to the person’s valuable achievements that have benefited the university and the nation.
The difference between these two in the title is while the usual doctorate degree title uses “Dr.” at the beginning of their name, an honorary doctorate degree recipient usually places a different title, “Honoris Causa” (H.C.) after their name.
The Reason Behind Bang Si Hyu’s Honorary Degree
Furthermore, Seoul National University (SNU) decided to award BTS father, Bang Si Hyuk PD, with an honorary doctorate degree (PhD) for all his outstanding services in the music industry.
According to the university, Bang Si Hyuk PD has provided South Korea with a powerful contribution. His achievements in the music industry managed to develop Kpop into the world’s best popular culture. And this achievement is an outstanding service that has elevated the status of South Korea.
“Bang Si Hyuk has significantly contributed to elevating Korea’s status by developing the South Korean K-pop industry into the world’s best popular culture.
Chairman Bang Si-hyuk, also called the father of BTS, has produced outstanding artists since he founded Big Hit Entertainment. In particular, he showed exceptional management leadership, including being listed in the top 25 most influential executives in the industry on this year’s ‘Billboard Power List’.”Seoul National University.
The BIG Secret Behind HYBE Success Key
On top of everything, during the award ceremony, Bang Si Hyuk PD delivered not only an inspiring speech but also exposed the big secret to HYBE success key.
Further in his speech, Bang Si Hyuk revealed that the reason and secret to the key to HYBE success is focusing on the core issue.
Most companies, institutions, and organizations usually choose to act fast once an issue occurs. That way, they can solve the immediate problem as soon as possible and continue progressing.
But that is not HYBE.
According to Bang Si Hyuk PD, if you want to follow the secret key to HYBE success, you should focus more on the primary foundation rather than the surface. That is why after a long and challenging process, HYBE can finally reap what they sowed today.
“The self-diagnosis and prescription we must understand is that we should focus on the essence rather than solving the immediate problem. It has become the conclusive reason for the company to survive so far.
I truly believe in the essence of this principle, and I have always tried my best to protect it. That is why today I think the time has come when we can expect the end of the long tunnel.
Hence, we will continue studying what the future music industry will look like and strive for survival in the long run.”Bang Si Hyuk.
