Double Bruin Earned an MBA for Fun
Yong Kim (B.A. ’09, ’23) knows something about fun. Not only does he work in the entertainment industry, he performed as an undergraduate as UCLA’s Joe Bruin mascot for two seasons. Currently the Vice President, Worldwide Television Publicity at Warner Bros., Yong didn’t “need” to earn another degree to advance his career, but he felt increasingly compelled to pursue an Anderson MBA. He prefers bonding with his classmates to networking, and to hear him tell it, the “F” in FEMBA stands for “fun."
