When Darden Professor Frank Warnock and Senior Lecturer and Batten Fellow Veronica Warnock traveled to Seoul this week for the 2015 Korea Development Institute (KDI) and Ministry of Strategy of Finance Global Financial Stability Conference, they prioritized spending time with alumni in Korea.
The Korea Chapter Leader, Kenneth Kim (MBA ’05), organized an evening reception to welcome the Warnocks to Seoul and provided an opportunity for them to share updates from Darden, particularly regarding the Asia Initiative.
Kim said, “It was a very meaningful event not only to discuss the Asia Initiative, but also to brainstorm a number of ideas to grow Darden’s brand and impact in the region. I hope the Initiative can create a number of opportunities to support the students and alumni through collaborative efforts such as expanding the Global Business Experiences program to the region and starting R&D projects between Darden and regional companies.”
While in Seoul, Frank Warnock also presented at the 7th Annual Financial Management Association International (FMA) Asia Meeting. Both Frank and Veronica also enjoyed a cultural visit playing traditional instruments at the newly opened www.ktcc.or.kr in Jeonju.
