history [edit ]

Eminata is owned and chaired by the Korean-born businessman Peter Chung, whose class emigrated to the uranium when he was a boy. He built up an enterprise in California consist of real estate ventures and for-profit schools but went bankrupt after the failure of his calculator school, Wilshire Computer College, in 1993. Two years later, he founded Eminata in Vancouver.
