Sehyun Yoo, M.B.A., Ph.D.
Assistant Professor of Finance
What brought you to Belmont?
Two things stood out when I was applying for my position at Belmont. One was the Christian value embedded in almost every aspect of Belmont. During my campus visit, I was amazed to hear that Moses was quoted in a finance class. The other was small class size, which helps the instructor and the students communicate and interact more effectively.
What’s it like to live and work in Nashville?
People say Nashville is a small big city. As one who has lived in small towns and big cities in America and other countries, I have found it amazing for Nashville to provide the best of both harmoniously. While facilities of a metropolitan urban life are at my fingertips, I’ve always felt as if I’ve lived in a small town close to nature with the Smoky Mountains, the Emerald Coast and the Tennessee River all within striking distance. As one of the fastest growing cities in the US, Nashville is changing into a more ethnically and culturally diverse community that anyone can fit into.
What would you say to someone considering
joining the Belmont faculty?
I recommend Belmont without reservation for anyone who values the following:
- Christian faith and heritage inside and outside class
- Small class size and close teacher/student relationships
- Professional growth in a fast-growing, dynamic institution
