M.S. in Finance

Xinyu Wang

Meet M.S. in Finance Student, Xinyu Wang
“Professor Zhengping Wu and Professor Rong Li taught me not only knowledge in the classroom but also lessons about my future career…with their help and guidance, I am able to think about ‘what is business?’ from a different perspective. In my old mindset, business was all about how to make money. However, they told me that business can also help lower the cost of a service or product to allow more people to enjoy it. This is a very important message to me.”
—Xinyu Wang ’20 M.S.
