About me: Bobby graduated from Yonsei University with a bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering and a master’s degree in economics.

Pursuant to embracing a growth mindset, Bobby had taken up various challenges in a multinational conglomerate prior to joining London Business School. Professionally, he effectively developed a unique and wide career spectrum with hands-on experience ranging from production engineering, sales and marketing, business development to working as an aide to top management. 

With vast experience in the global scene having resided in Sydney, Los Angeles, Kuala Lumpur, Seoul and now London, Bobby delved deeper to discover that great inspirations originate from engaging with people across different sectors and cultural backgrounds. These values were the prime reason for him becoming a part of the London Business School community - considering the true diversity the School and the city of London has to offer. 

During his MBA, Bobby looks to consolidate a future role into corporate strategy and seek new business opportunities in emerging industries, particularly in the tech and automotive industries.

Three topics I can be approached about: Technology; Asian living in London and sponsored candidates; studying abroad with family
