Center for Asian Business at Loyola Marymount University

Lecture Series And Movie Screenings

D.K. Kim & Loyola Marymount University

In 2017, D.K. Kim Foundation awarded a 5 year grant to the Center for Asian Business at Loyola Marymount University (LMU) in Los Angeles, CA.  This grant provides opportunities for the LMU community to enhance understanding of Asia, China, Japan, and Korea. Lecturers explore Asian issues from cultural, sociological, political, economic and business perspectives, and screenings of entertainment media that are socially and culturally significant.

The lecture series focuses on current Asian issues that have an influence on our economy, foreign affairs and cultural understanding. The lecture series is offered during the academic year by prominent experts followed by Q&A sessions.

In addition, there will be film screenings, such as movies or documentaries which identify socio-cultural systems and lifestyles in China, Korea and Japan.

Kim Foundation Lecture Series and Movie Screenings” to view a calendar of events, and listen to previous webcast lectures.  The lectures and screenings are open to all. Please RSVP through the above mentioned website if you plan on attending one of the lectures.

The grant also supports up to four scholarships for students enrolled in two special international business courses, “Exploring Asian Culture,” and “Global Sustainability: Challenges and Prospects in East Asia.” These scholarships enable students with financial needs to participate in these experiential learning courses and broaden their perspectives to become a global leader.  The lecture series and film screenings deepen the students’ geopolitical and cultural understanding of the region prior to embarking on their study aboard trips.
