Jiabo grew up in Shanghai and studied international 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 management consultant at Accenture, helping insurers, securities companies and other 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 wants to continue his consulting career while switching the concentration to other industries and functions, especially TMT, the public sector and the education industry.
