In a recent webinar, Shanbo Zhang MBA'18, credits his phenomenal success to Willamette MBA.

Shanbo, who graduated from Willamette MBA in May 2018, discusses his experience at Willamette MBA and his post-graduate career. Shanbo currently works in a global angel investment fund and serves on the board of three not-for-profit organizations. He works closely with U.S. and Chinese local and state/provincial governments to bring entrepreneurs and investors from both sides of the Pacific Ocean together. He started building his resume as a Willamette MBA student and achieved these accomplishments in less than 3 years.

Shanbo credits Willamette MBA's unique cross-sectoral approach that helped him launch his career in both not-for-profit and for-profit sectors. In particular, Shanbo credits the Angel Fund and Grant Administration (now Philanthropic Investment for Community Impact) experiential courses for giving him the skills he uses every day. What made Shanbo's Willamette MBA education possible was the generous scholarship he received his first year. In his second year, due to his accomplishments, Shanbo received an additional scholarship.

Watch the webinar to find out more about Shanbo's experience at Willamette MBA and his post-graduate career.
