More than 120 business professionals from South Korea visited the University of New Orleans last month to tour the campus and hear a lecture by Dong-Jun (D.J.) Min, assistant professor of marketing.
Leaders and employees in attendance came from several companies, including Amore Pacific, SK Holdings, Lotte Co., LG Chem, LG Electronics, Hyundai and POSCO. The group was in New Orleans attending SHRM17, the annual conference of the Society for Human Resource Management.
By request, Min presented a lecture about managing millennials in the workplace, a topic that he said appears to have universal interest among human resources professionals. Millennials are typically considered to be individuals born in the early 1980s to the early 2000s. Their impact on business has long been a focus of global research.
Following the lecture, students from the UNO Ambassadors escorted the visitors on a tour of UNO’s campus. “I think it was a good introductory level opportunity to expose these professionals to the University of New Orleans,” Min said.
The June 17 visit was arranged by KMAC, a business consulting company that helped plan the group’s visit to the New Orleans conference.
Min joined UNO in 2015. He holds a doctorate in marketing from the University of Georgia, a master’s degree from the University of Denver and a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Kyung Hee University in South Korea.
