Mr. Back To School
Hey there! Two things set me apart from everyone sitting at the b-school days at Campus X, I’m 49 and lived in Asia (Seoul, Bangkok) for 19 years. After 9 years as Associate Professor with Sejong University, in 2013 I moved to Bangkok and started a guest house. In 2019 my mother was hospitalized quite frequently so we moved to America in December 2019.
Undergrad School: Michigan State University

Age: 49, Ethnicity: White
Other Degree/Certification: MA in Asian Studies certificate
School Name: Sejong University
Extracurriculars: Docent with Houston Museum of Natural Science, Disaster Action Team volunteer with American Red Cross
Company: Boutique hotel and restaurant
Length of Employment: 6 yrs
Big Life Wins:
My tiny guest house was such a success that I expanded the occupancy of the house and eventually acquired two more houses and opened a restaurant.
Post MBA Goal:
Short term, I’d like to take advantage of the CDO on campus to find a great job here in America, but eventually, 10-15 years from now, I anticipate moving back to SE Asia. My current idea is to take advantage of my age, experience in Asia, great MBA degree, and limited US work experience to get a job as a consultant in Asia.
