SolBridge’s lecture series is one of the school’s pillars with distinguished academicians and business leaders addressing students on some of today’s more important global economic and business issues. Through these lectures, students gain insights into today’s ever-changing business world to help them become the next generation of Asian Thought Leaders.
Students and faculty were treated to a very special and timely lecture on November 5, 2013 which shed light on Korea’s economic prospects and policy issues.
“The Korean economy is very exciting, dynamic and energetic,” said Dr. Jung-hoon Kim from the Gyeonggi Research Institute. “I hope that after today you will understand the Korean economy a little better.”
Korea’s rise to one of the world’s leading and vibrant economies was not an easy one. To be sure, following the 1950-53 Korean War, General Douglas MacArthur said that it would take one hundred years for the country to recover.
Being successful in today’s competitive business world takes more than applying what one has learned in the classroom. Success also means finding out what makes you happy.
