Meet Stanford’s MBA Class of 2018

Won Choi (Won Sang Choi)          

Stanford Graduate School of Business

Describe yourself in 15 words or less: I want to build a legacy that lasts longer than my life.

Hometown: Seoul, South Korea

Fun Fact About Yourself: I have a 15-month-old daughter with my wife whom I first met at 16.

Undergraduate School and Major: Chemical and Biological engineering, Seoul National University

Employers and Job Titles Since Graduation: Engineer at Samsung Electronics Semiconductor R&D center

Describe your biggest accomplishment in your career so far: It would either be a two-year early promotion for the first time in team’s history and becoming a top core personnel member for outstanding technical initiatives and leadership.

Looking back on your experience, what advice would you give to future business school applicants?  The best essay seems to be the one that shows who you truly are. Focus on what defines you, be authentic about your passion, and show the goal you must achieve in your life. Write something that you’ll be carrying with you regardless of the result. 

What led you to choose this program for your full-time MBA? I chose GSB because of the people.

I always loved meeting people who motivate me. My interviewer, the first GSB’er I had met, was that kind of person. As soon as I got into GSB, I was invited to various GSB events in Seoul. Through those events, I learned that GSB community was full of great people. I really liked that I was building a relationship with the GSB community even before coming to the GSB campus. And GSB naturally became part of my life.

Tell us about your dream job or dream employer at this point in your life? Since I want to build a legacy, I want to work with people who try extraordinary things no one else is even dreaming of, because I believe the world changes when those unexpected things become real, not when expected things happen.

What would you like your business school peers to say about you after you graduate from this program? A positive, open guy people can always reach out to.
