About me: Zhen, born and raised in Shanghai, moved to the UK in 2012 to expand his horizons and explore western culture. He started his new adventure at Imperial College London, studying Electronic and Information Engineering. Passionate about both tech and finance, he joined Deutsche Bank as a business analyst working in their asset management division. After three years Zhen had the opportunity to further pursue his passion and moved to a small fintech start-up, leading deliveries of in-house AI products to banks and asset managers.

Zhen decided to pursue an MBA to advance his career in corporate strategy and management, and to combine his technical skill set with holistic, strategic and business-centric approaches. He chose LBS for the international diversity of the cohort and the abundance of opportunities in London for entertainment, culture and travel.

Outside of the classroom, Zhen has a broad range of interests including motor sports (big Verstappen fan), basketball, skiing, board games, food, art and music.

Three topics I can be approached about: Technology; what it is like living in London; how to prepare for your MBA
