Ming "Winnie" Xiong

Tech Team Lead, FinTech, Amazon

When Winnie Xiong began her MBA studies at Vanderbilt, she came to a surprising epiphany. Despite her experience working with international colleagues at both large and small companies, she realized that she still viewed the world from the perspective of her native China. At Vanderbilt, she interacted with faculty and studies from many countries and cultures. “Now I view the world from a truly global perspective,” she says.
