  • Dean Park’s Message to SolBridge Graduating Class of Spring 2022">Dean Park’s Message to SolBridge Graduating Class of Spring 2022

     I’d like to thank Founder Kim, Chairman Kim, President Oh,and our distinguished high officials and faculty members for giving me thestage.On behalf of everyone at SolBridge and Woosong, I offer thegraduating class of Spring 2022 the warmest of congratulations. This event is truly a landmark in our history. You are thefirst class since the onset of COVID-19 to be part of a fully in-personcommencement ceremony that we have held at SolBridge, even if not every one ofour graduates could join us. Our graduates from 13 countries from around theworld can celebrate their achievement together in one place, receiving all ofthe applause from family and friends that you so much deserve. As the world isdoing, we continue to take steps into the Post-COVID new normal.Despite the challenges of the previous 2.5 years, youadapted and innovated, surviving and thriving in online/hybrid environments.You took part in remote internships and international workshops andcompetitions, you were able to socialize, make friends, and have fun evenamidst social distancing limitations. We are all so very proud of you for yourremarkable achievements. You, each one of you, are truly a success.But of course, this new normal is not all rosy. As theworld is more tied together than ever before and Industry 4.0 in full force,strengthened by the push factor of COVID, it seems as though we continue toface one crisis after another.We have just heard of the impact of Fed’s decision to hikethe interest rates; in an amount some are calling a “giant step”. This has animmediate impact on exchange rates and has ripple effects on economies aroundthe world. We see gas prices higher than ever in recent memory. We still have awar in Ukraine that also impacts our region and the world. We have shifts inbusiness and governance philosophies, such as regionalism, equity,sustainability, social responsibility—many of which may be a positive shift inthe grand scheme of things, but tumultuous nevertheless. And I’m sure these canbe closely felt by you, our graduates, most of whom now enter the world nolonger as students, but as members of the working society. And you may feel abit daunted.In a previous speech, I used the analogy of a reed, thatfeels weak, fragile, and flimsy, especially in the face of such forces. But howindividual reeds, when tied together as stacks, can be strong and resilient,not falling to storms that may bring down even the stoutest of trees.This is how I hope SolBridge will function for you.You collectively are a part of a uniquely diverse,supportive, and successful SolBridge community equipped with GACCS: GlobalPerspective, Asian Expertise, Creative Management Foundation, Cross-culturalCompetence, and Social Responsibility.You will always be a part of the SolBridge family, who canreadily be identified by the GACCS DNA. Just as you did not let go of yourrelationship with family after leaving them to come to SolBridge, to Korea,don’t let go of the friendships you’ve made with your fellow classmates, bondsyou have built with your professors—make a real effort to stay in touch. Takeadvantage of our alumni network; we are really working hard to strengthen thisnetwork, hosting online and in-person alumni meetings. We will connect you withmany of our successful former graduates from around the world; please take partand take full advantage of your worldwide family. And rest assured that just asyou will continue to strive for higher and greater achievements, your almamater will do the same—as was proven by SolBridge being selected as the firstschool in East Asia to be recognized twice by AACSB in its Innovations thatInspire feature, with us receiving the honor once again this year.
