The Columbia Business School Club of Spain and the UCLA - Anderson School of Management Alumni Network of Spain, jointly with other schools*, are proud to invite you to a new edition of the leader's lunch series hosting Mr. Jaime de Jaráiz,  President & CEO of LG España, a Korean-based world leader of consumer electronics.

Mr. Jaráiz will brief participants on the South Korean economy, a model that has received international fame and praise, able to grow from an underveloped status after the country's civil war to become one of the world's eleven largest economies.

Underlying such success is the Korean style of management. Mr. Jaráiz will focus on the key principles of management that have allowed South Korean industr¡es to evolve from copying technology to leading and commercializing it at a global scale. He will also emphasize the different nature of the Chinese, Japanese and Korean management styles, and will reason the need for the Western world to enhance the knowledge of the Eastern history and culture and learn from their success at competing in the global economy.

The topics will be discussed over lunch and a debate with participants will follow.

We will be delighted to meet you and share this eye-opening session.
