Alumni Homecoming Mixer
On Thursday, October 31, a few alums paid a visit to SKK GSB for the inaugural Alumni Homecoming Mixer. With some help from the administration, Tyron Sabatta (Class of 2021, President) and Melina Bauer (Class of 2021, Vice-President) were able to organize this event for students. Their goal was to give students a chance to meet, network, and gain advice from alums who are now utilizing their degrees at businesses and corporations in Seoul. The alums present were Iksoo Hwang, Esme Fong, Eamon Byrne, Min Jae Kim, and John Nguyen.
President Sabatta shared, “I wanted to give students the opportunity to meet some face to face. I felt that learning how to navigate the Korean job market from people who have the first-hand experience is invaluable and something we could have only gotten from that type of event.”
The evening started with a panel discussion led by President Sabatta. He asked the alums many questions concerning their experience at SKK GSB, their job search and the application process, what they do in their respective jobs, and how SKK GSB prepared them for the rigors of entering the workforce. Each gave their response and also incorporated advice on what SKK GSB students should be taking away from the program and advice on how to secure jobs.
The evening was then followed by a reception with light refreshments and beverages. During this time, students were able to connect with alums, ask more personal questions, and exchange business cards. “This is hopefully a network that can extend and build for decades to come and benefit not only our students but also the alumni,” President Sabbatta remarked. Overall, the event was a major success and gave students the opportunity to see the value of SKK GSB MBA and how it has led to the success of many alums.
