On March 27th, SM Entertainment’s Lee Soo Man gave a lecture for 32 special students attending Stanford University’s business school.
As a part of the “Korea Global Study Trip 2001” program, Lee Soo Man lectured on the theory of CT (Culture Technology), while elaborating on with the aspects of SM’s successful globalization and business management strategies, which allowed them to become the leaders of the Hallyu wave today.
He focused especially on the topic of success, emphasizing the importance of passion and pursuing what one truly enjoys. With his witty humor and useful advice, Lee Soo Man was said to have captured the attention of every student in the room from start to finish.
Labelmates KangTa, Zhang Liyin, SNSD, SHINee, and f(x) also attended the event.
After the lecture, Joseph (28), commented, “It was a very passionate lecture that put me in awe with Lee Soo Man’s abilities as a producer to advance SM. There are a lot of students at Stanford interested in the entertainment industry, so the lecture was a great opportunity.”
Lee Soo Man has experience lecturing for three consecutive years for Harvard University, MIT, and Cornell University’s MBA students. The producer is still receiving unending appearance requests from some of the top colleges in the nation, and was even invited to the “2010 Harvard Asia Business Conference” as a representative of Asia’s entertainment industry.
