The MFin program provided me a valuable platform to take advantage of opportunities in an expanding market which operates with a different cultural mindset. Through this program I was able to gain an understanding of finance in Asia and gain insights from academics from two top-tier universities in Canada and China. I would recommend this program to anyone who wishes to break into China's fast-growing financial market and serve as a bridge between East and West.

I gained very practical financial knowledge and skills through this program and it has expanded my knowledge of the financial sectors in both Canada and China. Professors come from diverse backgrounds and have given us career advice apart from teaching which has helped shape my career goals. Some courses such as Corporate Finance and Financial Modelling solidified our finance knowledge and helped me secure several internship opportunities. For example, valuation methods and financial modelling were requirements for my role at the Bank of China International. My involvement as a market neutral analyst in the Queen’s University Alternative Asset Fund exposed me to Canadian financial markets especially in the hedge fund sector. These experiences gave me hands-on learning opportunities of various finance roles, which will reassure employers that I am a qualified candidate. Overall, this program's strong industry-focus supported by the abundance of advanced financial knowledge has helped me build a solid foundation for a career in finance.

Studying abroad allowed me to fully immerse myself in a different culture and experience the world from a completely new perspective. At the same time Smith's Master of Finance program taught me the skills and knowledge necessary to compete in the global financial markets. While enrolled in the program I took on a non-profit volunteer role as Chief Financial Officer for the newly formed Canada-China Youth Association (CCYA). We focused on Canada-China relations and organized events for locals, foreigners and expats in the Beijing community.

This program enhanced my finance skills from a practical point of view and I’ve been able to implement what I learnt while working in the social impact space. Many of the faculty have professional experience and the curriculum was designed using real-life case studies. There’s a very integrated, close-knit quality to the social dynamic here. The alumni and school resources provided me access to top-caliber executives and events organized by both foreign and local societies.

The MFIN program served as a platform for me to make a smooth transition from my legal background into the financial industry. Some courses, such as equity analysis, instilled in me a deep interest in equities and is the reason I am working in the related area today. In addition, the program gave me the opportunity to take on multiple leadership roles where I could not only apply my financial knowledge but also enhance my interpersonal skills. I was the Class President and also the founder of the Beijing team of Queen's Alternative Assets Fund. Both roles helped me in my career development because it has enabled me to show employers my ability to exceed beyond expectations. During the program, I actively networked within Beijing and also worked at the Embassy of Canada as a finance and economics intern which gave me significant exposure to the Chinese economy and markets. Overall, I was impressed with the passionate teaching of the Faculty members who always pushed us beyond our limits and prepared us to tackle the challenges present in the industry today.
