Since November 2022, Yaran Xiao has been researching the role of business families in Chinese family businesses in mainland China as a scholarship holder of the WIFU Foundation under the supervision of PD Dr Tobias Köllner. In this project, she is analysing the structure, composition and cohesion of business families in contemporary China. Yaran Xiao holds a double Master’s degree in Business Administration and Management Studies, which she obtained from INTI International University, Malaysia, and the University of Hertfordshire, UK. Since 2019, she has been studying in the Master’s programme “East Asian Studies” at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Previously, she completed her Bachelor’s degree at Hebei Normal University, China. Her multicultural background sparked her interest in international exchange and intercultural education, which led her to pursue her academic research in the fields of cultural comparison and anthropology, ritual economics and Chinese studies.
