Kevin Kwan, international best-selling author of the Crazy, Rich Asians trilogy, spoke in an exclusive session to our MBA and EMBA students about the themes of his novels and his own path to success. Kevin Kwan has topped the bestselling charts since his first novel, Crazy Rich Asians, became a global sensation. His outrageous (and authentic) stories about family, money, business, and the world serve as powerful commentary on culture, wealth and society.

Lucky winner, Becca Gil '22, received a mailed copy of Kwan's latest book, Sex and Vanity.
