Get to Know James

"I was born in Korea, grew up in Canada, and did my undergrad at McGill University in Biochemistry. With that background in science, I had worked in a pharmaceutical company for the last six years before Tepper.

"I joined an MBA program to augment a strategic perspective of the work that I do and I chose the Tepper School because of its tight-knit community. I am a father of a 14 month-old son and moved to Pittsburgh with my family in the middle of the pandemic!"
