Get to Know Donghyun

"I was born and raised in Seoul, Korea. I worked for T-Money (formerly Korea Smart Card Corporation), which runs a public transportation system and issues prepaid cards, for about five years. T-Money covers the integrated mass transportation network in Seoul, 15 other cities in Korea, and several other cities abroad. In the company, I managed several projects, such as building strategies and making contracts with credit card companies.

"Personally, I really like to travel. I've traveled to over 80 cities and 25 countries and usually travel at least ten times every year. I had beer with a group of Russian mafias, looking out at the vast meadow on the Trans-Siberian Railway, and reached the peaks of the Alps from Switzerland, Germany, and Austria.

"The reason I chose Tepper is because of its strength in the fields of data analytics and engineering. I think future leaders need to be developed with insight related to data."
