I’m Luka and I was born in Beijing and raised in Beijing, China as well as in Orange County, USA.

I’m currently a GMBA student at ESSEC in the Luxury Brand Management track. Before coming to study at ESSEC, I had a circuitous career first in arms trade, then international e-commerce, and most recently in TESOL and test prep education, both as a teacher and a manager.

I have also worked part-time as a translator, a theater stagehand, a fiction author, an English interviewer, and an education counselor, and have done internships in the luxury & fashion industry. As my interests and passions evolved over the years, I’ve continued to branch into new areas of exploration, pick up new skills, and discover more sides of myself previously unknown.

I’ve chosen to study luxury brand management because of my deep-felt connection to history and theatre – a type of luxury experience, in my opinion. I’m planning to make yet another career switch and enter a new field after the MBA program. Being part of the first GMBA cohort that has classes mainly on the La Defense campus, I have enjoyed a great experience so far living so close to Paris. ESSEC GMBA has a tight-knit cohort, and I truly enjoy my time with my classmates here.

I would be glad to share my experience with you and please do not hesitate to ask me anything!
