A Kellogg School of Management alumnus was a passenger on the Malaysia Airlines flight that went missing March 8.

Rory (Rui) Wang (Kellogg ’08), 35, earned an MBA in Strategy, Finance and Marketing in 2008. According to Wang’s LinkedIn page, he was most recently working at the Boston Consulting Group in Beijing. He previously worked at A.T. Kearney and studied accounting at Tsinghua University from 1998-2002.

According to Flight 370’s passenger manifest, Wang was traveling with his wife, Jiao Weiwei, 32, and their 2-year-old son Moheng.

His wife’s parents, Jiao Wenxue and Dai Shuling, both 58, were also on the flight, which has sparked a weeks-long international search and rescue effort. Malaysian officials have said it is “beyond all reasonable doubt” the flight crashed in the Indian Ocean and none of the passengers survived.
