Alice GUO, Chinese Alumna

The IBPM provided me with an especially firm grounding that definitely contributed to my subsequent success at the London School of Economics. I was recently chosen to carry out my semester abroad on the Chicago Booth School of Business MBA programme, the most demanding study term available within my whole class. Upon completion of the various selection exams and interviews designed to attribute places for this semester abroad, the adjudication panel confirmed that I should be very proud of the school where I carried out my Bachelor studies, Rennes School of Business.
