Why did you choose to attend the Smith School of Business?

First, Smith has world-class faculty and all faculty are very glad to help students. With their help, I can find my career path clearly in the future. Second, the courses provided at Smith are very attractive. I am especially interested in courses such as Financial Econometric and Applied Equity Research, which are very quantitative and will equip me with useful skills in the future.

In your opinion, what makes your Smith MS program unique?

Smith MS programs provide various career services such as resume & cover letter revision, mock interviews and workshops. These opportunities are available every week. We can make an appointment with career coaches and graduate assistants when we need career advice, which is very convenient. The faculty are also very responsible and helpful.

What advice would you give to a future candidate?

I suggest that candidates do research early on regarding different programs and prepare early for their application. When applying for MS programs at Smith, contacting Master’s students at the school is a good way to learn more about the Smith School in detail.
