Current Student Representative Speech by GYEONGBAE


Dear school faculty, fellow students, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen,

Welcome to the IBS community, this is GyeongBae Jeon. I am currently a junior and serving as one of the board members in the IBS Union. Above all, I would like to express my grief upon being not able to look at all your faces and talk to you in one same room. I have to say that I am greatly desperate as much as you wishing to go back to our campus as soon as possible. Today, I wish I could briefly share my experience in BFSU to you. My journey in BFSU has been a blessing. My little advice can be derived from this quote, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”

Let me start with explaining the attractive opportunity that IBS-BFSU faculty added into our curriculum is so called. “immersion week.” It is where we get to visit bunch of innovative and pioneering companies in China and travel the famous tourist sites such as Hangzhou. It is worth for me to mention because it was an opportunity for me to interact with the actual business world and apply the business mindset. My team put heads together and tried to suggest new business ideas to the cities that we visited. It boasted a sheer self-confidence in myself that I could as well as start a business, which was what I needed. I hope you guys are excited as much as I do as you will be able to expand your perspective and have a sense of working in an international team.

Unfortunately, the situation is a bit different at this moment. However, this does not mean there is no door of adventure for you to knock. The faculties host numerous business competitions even during this time. You should consider partnering up with your fellow classmates and be the challenger so that you will facilitate your caliber to the next level. Your professors and the faculties will be here to give you the utmost help and provide the tools for you to grow.

Once everything settles down, the faculties and the IBS Union will be waiting in the campus to give you all the big hugs. We will be cherishing the moments in our community together. You will get to make new friends, the potential business partners, and feel the academic environment side by side with the Chinese students, and participate and organize numerous international events.

As my ending remarks, I wish that the experience here becomes your milestone to help you embark on your future journey successfully. Thank you.
