Gabi Yoon (class of 2019, AppTweak)
Most of the knowledge that I learned from the MBA classes is directly helpful and effectively used in my work. I am in particular benefiting a lot from the first semester classes such as Management, Economics, Finance and Data Analysis. SKK GSB professors use various teaching methods to elevate student participation and encourage students to constantly question themselves while thinking critically. Thanks to this, I got used to thinking deeply, and giving opinions widely. After the MBA, I always took the initiative, and became confident in solving problems. Specifically, when I was recently analyzing social listening data in S-core, I applied the analytic skills that I learned in Prof. Yanbo Wang’s Quantitative Analysis class. When it comes to contracting, or when we need Win-Win negotiations, the client/partner acquisition skills from Prof. Adam Castor’s Negotiation class are of great help. I focus on the value of what I create when I work rather than just on the activity. I also try my best to help the company and our clients to develop.
I highly recommend taking an MBA for anyone who wants a transition or career development. I developed my career and learned a lot more than I expected. I keep in touch with my friends from various fields and my professors at SKK GSB. While working at the Korea MBA Association, I often interacted with MBA students from other schools, and met many people at work even after we graduated. The MBA experience was an opportunity in my life where I reflected greatly on myself, and developed a lot as an individual.

The MBA isn't all that made me who I am today, but I think that I steadily pursued becoming the person I am today through the MBA course. I enjoy challenges and growth, but above all, I wanted to live a life where I could immerse myself in what is meaningful to me. By embarking on the MBA and completing the marketing track, I developed in my professional field while exploring opportunities to gain relevant experience through networking with classmates, seniors, and juniors. After graduating with an MBA, I did marketing consulting at a consulting firm, and later served as CMO at The Booth, a craft beer brand, and at Playlist, a content company, expanding my marketing domain through branding. Now, as Head of Marketing at Finda, I lead the growth team, branding team, and marketing design team. MBA is a process of creating a better future by using deep thought about career path and future, and using various stimuli through networking, as well as professional education during mathematics, and the guidance of world-class professors. Thinking that ‘everything will be all right because I passed the MBA and came all this way’ cannot lead to a real transformation. Starting with the MBA, I hope you will lead yourself closer to your ultimate life goal by actively utilizing the courses and networks. I want you to imagine the experiences and career goals you want in SKK GSB as concretely as possible, and to create opportunities to gain as many experiences, memories, and contacts as possible beyond your imagination.
