At BCG, Visionaries navigate complexity with ease. They use their insight and intuition to identify the solutions that will create lasting impact. Jingjing is unafraid to try new things.
The best part of working at BCG is the team I have. People are always willing to help, and you can always learn something new from the person sitting next to you.
Prior to BCG, I spent most of my career in consumer goods marketing. BCG has provided me with a whole new perspective and a bigger picture of what I thought I understood. My teammates and I are enabled with knowledge and tools that help us uncover local insights with a global view. We get to go deep to understand real challenges and look for clarity in the constantly changing business world.
BCG has also brought me so many opportunities to understand new industries and functions, including the real frontier ones such as big data and financial technology. My latest case was helping an Internet-based financial-services company chart its course in the highly competitive and rapidly evolving Chinese financial-services market. The process was full of fun and new discoveries. Here at BCG, I am always inspired by new business questions and challenges. I wake up every day ready to learn more and make more impact.
Jingjing holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of International Business and Economics and an MBA from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
