Yan Tang, MBA Candidate

CLIENT RELATIONSHIP MANAGER

I have been with RAMP since early 2016 when I started getting involved in piloting RAMP. We support small businesses in communities; meanwhile we learn the most by working with them and solving real business problems. In early July, I co-founded a new venture called CareerLight, a company that provides customized career training to international students to help them prepare for a successful career in the U.S.
