Daytime MBA | Class of 2021


I earned my Bachelor of Social Science in Asia Pacific Studies with a focus on peace studies from Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University. To apply what I had learned, upon graduation I joined the Republic of Korean Army and volunteered for a short tour with the U.N. Peace Keeping Operations. Serving as an intelligence officer made me realize the power of technology, and I joined Samsung SDS to work in the Digital Healthcare Team for five years as global business development manager for patient monitoring solutions.

Before joining Fuqua, I spent a year leading a startup to develop an AI chatbot designed to prevent ADHD in young children. I plan to continue in the digital health care space to improve patient experience and outcomes through technology.
