Lvye Zhan

Master in Management

I’m Lvye, but you can call me Alice. I am from China and now I live in Caen. Currently, I am about to finish my Master’s degree in Caen and soon I will need to go to Paris for my internship.

What are your career perspectives here?

Now that I have polished my skills, I would say I will humbly go back to my sphere, which is BDs and sales, and do what I am already good at, and make it even better.

As for vocation, since I have an international concept of the company or work, actually I don’t really make sure or don’t set myself in a frame that says I need to be in China or I need to be in France, because I know that what I’m going to serve is going to be international, so I don’t want to frame myself.

Currently, I am doing a 6-month internship in Paris and we’ll see what happens after that.
