What is your educational background? I majored in statistics, and minored in economics and actuarial science, at Northern Illinois University.

Why did you choose the MSFE program? The reason I choose MSFE is that I love business and look forward to working in the field. This program will strengthen my knowledge in finance and economics.

What is your favorite thing to do in Madison? I like to walk around the town. I think Madison is both a noisy and quiet place. It’s a quiet city where you can think, but also a city where you can find friends to make noise with.

What classes do you enjoy most? I enjoy Fin720 because, like others, I want to learn practical skills and I enjoy courses that have a good professor who is willing to help you.

What are your career aspirations? My career aspiration is to work in an asset management position.
