Yiran Liu, MBA class of 2023, China

“Prior to IMD I had 6 years of cross-functional experience in sales, after sales, marketing and HR with 3 years in a leadership role as area manager in the automotive industry in China.

After the IMBA program, I hope to expand my career experience outside of Asia, in a more global perspective. The Forté Scholarship is helping me to make this goal come true and to connect me with a great network through their webinars and events.”

My future plan is to go back to a multinationals leading tech firm with a senior position. Therefore, during this MBA transformational year, I want to focus on personalized leadership and management training. I got admitted to the IMD MBA with a Forte scholarship and I am grateful to have been given this amazing opportunity in life.”
