About me: Jiabo grew up in Shanghai and studied accounting at Shanghai University of Finance and Economics. He spent a semester abroad studying at the University of Cologne in Germany, during which he travelled around and developed a strong affection for Europe. Prior to joining London Business School, Jiabo worked as a consultant at Accenture, helping financial institutions adopt digital solutions to optimise operations, manage risks and make wiser business decisions.
Aside from gaining more knowledge and exposure to strategy and marketing, Jiabo joined LBS to leverage its diverse student body and global network, and to capitalise on the unparalleled location in London. After his MBA he will be joining Bain, to continue his consulting career and explore more projects in TMT, consumer products and the education industry. On campus, Jiabo is a peer leader for the LBS Career Centre, covering the consulting sector. He is also an Executive Committee member and curator of TEDxLondonBusinessSchool, sourcing and working with London-based speakers to spread their ideas worth spreading.
Outside of the classroom, Jiabo is a singer, calligrapher and photographer. He loves visiting new places, discovering and capturing the unnoticed beauty in life.
