Cross Continent MBA | Class of 2018


Born in the sweet home state of Alabama, I spent half of my life in the U.S. and the other half in South Korea. I attended the University of Michigan where I studied business and developed an interest in renewable energy. My professional background is in management consulting with a focus in the utilities industry.

In my spare time, I run a soccer meetup in Chicago with my hyung (that’s a term for an older brother, related or not, in Korean).

Fuqua’s Cross Continent MBA program was a timely opportunity for me because I was at a point in my career and life where I wanted to advance my business education and learn more about myself by traveling the world through an academic lens.
