For applicants to The Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science, please tell us what attracts you specifically to the study of engineering:
After reading My Life as a Quant by Emanual Derman which describes his years at Goldman
Sachs, I confirmed my choice to study Financial Engineering. I am a good mathematician and
using mathematical tools to solve problems in finance is of great utility to me. Furthermore,
financial engineering is a new study that most Chinese universities do not offer. With rapid
development in financial market, China is in great need of people who specialize in using quant
methods to solve financial problems. As a Columbia graduate, I will definitely become a leader
in Financial Engineering in China.
