(Student Profile)

Catherine Cai

“Following my MIB degree at Grenoble Graduate School of Business, I have become a Marketing Director for a Chinese/French agency, based in Paris, specializing in marketing and communication within the Chinese market. I am in charge of all e-commerce and communication events for all French luxury brands and manage a team of five colleagues.

The MIB program has helped me to build upon my professional career and enabled me to obtain a position at a higher level. I have taken quite a jump in my career and I am now living my professional dream of working in a truly international environment, one similar to that of the diversity that I experienced at Grenoble Graduate School of Business.

My business responsibilities are two-fold in my company: on the one hand I am determining the marketing strategy in the Chinese market for all luxury brands and on the other hand I am in charge of the business development for the company as well. My management capabilities within the international business arena have greatly improved and I'd like to express my gratitude to Grenoble Graduate School of Business.”
