After completing my undergraduate study in the US, I went back to China and started working as an investment consultant in CICC wealth management. However, given my background in economics and finance, I was naturally more attracted to the investment side of the business. 

I really like the course design for the MSc Finance programme. We were required to attend the same classes in the Michaelmas term but were given freedom of course choice in the lent term. It allowed the students to focus on recruiting in autumn and to choose subjects most relevant to their future work/ interests in spring. I also appreciated the exclusive networking events, offered both by the school and the programme. Those events benefited me enormously in terms of directly communicating with professionals and being fast-tracked to the AC stage.

After the programme, I will be joining Goldman Sachs Asset Management full time in Hong Kong.

The people at LSE are the main highlight of the programme: both students and academic staff are just amazing. Another great highlight of the programme is the LSE alumni network which provides a great opportunity to network your way to a job you could not even dare to dream about: a factor that eventually worked for me just perfectly.

LSE can be the key opening the door to a great job, given you are ready to open this door yourself. If I managed to do that, being a non-European with possible UK visa problems and even having lost another job offer after the recruitment season, each prospective MSc Finance student who is ready to put effort, should be able to do the same.

After graduating I will be joining the Infrastructure team at Ardian where I will work as a Private Equity Intern.

LSE is definitely a fantastic place if you want to explore your interests, deepen your knowledge, and crystalize your career goal. In addition to its renowned reputation, widespread alumni network, and high-quality courses, my favorite part about MSc Finance program is its massive support about career development. I found that career fairs, consultation sessions, and technical workshops are really helpful and do open doors for us students.  

After the programme, I will be a financial analyst at American Express Investment Optimization team in London.
