Position title: 2021 Cohort
What is your educational background? I graduated from the University of Denver with a BA in Economics.
Why did you choose this program? I chose this MSFE program because it has exciting learning resources, and being able to study in two departments at the same time is a great experience. The small class size allows students to have a close relationship with professors, and we have plenty of opportunities to communicate with each other both inside and outside of class.
What do you enjoy most about living in Madison? UW-Madison has a great sports vibe, so watching a game with friends is my favorite past time. Although the weather in Madison is cold, it can’t stop the enthusiasm for the game.
What are your career aspirations? After graduation, I want to work in a financial analyst role in securities services at a corporate bank. My long-term goal is to become an investment consultant and work in a multinational investment company. This means I need to learn more about corporate finance, so corporate finance is the course I’m most looking forward to taking.
