Rushan Guan

Rushan knows data is becoming increasingly important in every line of business. That’s why he moved from the fashion capital of New York City to Chicago for an education with real impact on his career in luxury retail and merchandising. As Rushan says, two of the best-kept secrets at Chicago Booth are marketing and entrepreneurship. Utilizing the alumni network and Career Services, he has already landed internships at ZipFit Denim (founded by a Booth graduate) and Coach.
