Joon was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, but moved to Vancouver, Canada by himself when he was 12 to study. He then moved again to the US to pursue his undergraduate study and received a BS in Operations Research and Information Engineering from Cornell University. Before coming to LBS, Joon has worked as a management consultant in Korea, where he led Corporate Strategy, Business Strategy, and Strategic Innovation for clients across more than 14 industries. He has also completed a Pre-MBA Internship at a leading Korean private equity firm.
Joon decided to come to London Business School (LBS) to pursue an international career as he hopes to seek a profession in London after completing his MBA. LBS’s access to the vibrant business community in London was critical.
Joon is an executive member of Finance Club and Football Club, and he actively engages with Consulting Club as a Crack-a-Case Supervisor.
