New Student Profile: Victor Yan

Editor’s Note: This is part of a series of profiles we’ll be posting over the summer to introduce everyone to our incoming Class of 2018. Enjoy getting to know our new students as they get to know each other, our current students, staff, and the entire Tippie community!

Undergrad Institution: Qingdao University, Qingdao, Shandong, ChinaVictor Yan

Undergrad Major: International Economics and Trade

Hometown: Jinan, Shandong Province, China

Current City: Jinan, Shandong, China

Current Employment: I work for Shandong International Trust Corporation as a Trust Manager. I am mainly in charge of investing on various financial instruments, either standardized like stocks, bonds, or non-standardized assets like debts and equities. I enjoy this job because I can explore and research a lot of entities in various industries, which is refreshing. I have also done debt financing for very famous real estate companies like Evergrand and Soho China.

Why I chose Tippie: There are three reasons I have chosen the Tippie MBA: First, the academic background and national reputation of Tippie is widely admitted. Second, the relatively smaller class size will tie our class closer to each other and we will benefit from each other. Third, Iowa City is a nice place to live a peaceful and wonderful life.

What are you looking forward to most about living in Iowa City? I hope during the following two years in Iowa City I will enjoy every aspect of this colorful place and look forward to moving here as a newlywed.
