Bon Ick Ku is currently a senior at Cornell University expected to graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Hotel Administration and a minor in Real Estate. His main interest is in the areas of real estate development, asset management, and financial analysis.
Bon was born in Seoul, Korea but spent most of his teenage years in Wichita, Kansas before moving to upstate New York to attend Cornell University.
Following a sophomore year at the University, Bon joined the Republic of Korea army to fulfill a 21-month service requirement. That experience taught Bon the importance of teamwork and of adapting quickly to new and different environments. From there, Bon returned to Cornell with a renewed passion to pursue a hospitality-focused degree. Currently, Bon is on the Dean’s List and on track to graduate on January 2018.
Before Bon joined Horwath family, he had multiple internship experiences in the Korean hospitality industry, including the Corporate Finance Department at Aju Hotels & Resorts and the Project Management Team at The Hospitality Service. Bon also experienced the frontline operations of a 5-star hotel at W Seoul Walkerhill.
