Sara Zhao

  • Programme: MBA
  • Nationality: Chinese

Sara was born and raised in mainland China, and went to Hong Kong to pursue a degree in economics and mathematics from Hong Kong Baptist University. After graduation, she joined the Nomura Hong Kong economic research team where she developed her interest in the metal and mining industry, and later on moved to Thomson Reuters to be a precious metals analyst responsible for the Greater China area. With a service mind-set by heart, she transferred to a sales role to be a buy-side account manager at Bloomberg, and adopted a consultative approach to advise on clients’ technology landscapes.

Sara was attracted to LBS due to the true diversity of the MBA class and the collaborative and entrepreneurial vibe, while also located in the centre of an international hub of business and culture. The flexibility in selecting the courses she wants and the wide range of career opportunities available are also crucial for her. Sara is the Co-Chair of the China Business Forum and Co-Lead of the Hong Kong Finance Trek. In her spare time, she likes discovering hidden cafés and restaurants while studying for her wine appreciation certificate. A good yoga place or a new adventurous sport will always excite her.
