My greatest challenge when I applied to business school was: The huge gap between my undergraduate background in computer science and a business education at LBS.

About me: I was born and grew up in mainland China and studied for my undergraduate degree at Nanjing University in the dual degree programme of Computer Science & Financial Engineering. I completed internships at Roland Berger, EY and IBM, covering digital transformation, system upgrades and data-driven industrial planning. I genuinely enjoyed solving these problems with my teams and reinforced my passion for consulting and analytics, especially where these two intersect.

I chose the Masters in Analytics and Management programme to combine my technical ability with business insights and establish myself as a well-qualified professional in analytics fields.

Aside from my professional interests, I am particularly passionate about volunteering and tennis. I played for Nanjing University Varsity Tennis Team for three years and volunteered with an American NPO, Learning Enterprises, for three years, during which time my team and I helped children from underdeveloped regions in China, Romania and Panama to learn more about the world through English teaching.

Three topics I can be approached about: Out in Business Club; STEM in consulting; volunteering.
