Voice of Our Alumni

JIANG Xingda: Investment Manager, CITIC Wings Asset Management Co. Ltd.

I have been working in a fund company for 5 years when I decided to start my MBA study, first in charge of US equity trade, and the investment manager. Professionally, I have passed all three levels of CFA exams, so many people think I can just sit back and relax. However, the finance industry is a typical knowledge-intensive and high-pressure industry, especially for investment managers, even a tiny mistake may bring huge loss to the company. Moreover, assimilation and ossification are very dangerous but inevitable when you stay in a field for long, which is very dangerous to people engaged in investment. Therefore, I was keen for a platform to improve my knowledge structure, meet people with different background, enrich and deepen my understanding of other industries. The Tongji-Case Western Reserve MBA/MSM-Finance Double Degree Program is just the right one for me. In the pure English environment, through culture collision, both my horizon and thinking are broadened. The academic attainments and industry experience of first-class professors also benefits me a lot. Meanwhile, sharing of my classmates from various fields provides great help to my investment and research work.

LIU Feng: Senior Project Manager, Moody's Analytics

Becoming a member of finance industry was always my dream. However, due to lack of financial knowledge and related work experience, all my former trials failed. This double degree program offers me an opportunity to knock the door leading to finance field. My finance dream came true when I became a senior project manager in Moody's Analytics, a very famous American company, which happened only one year after I joined the double degree program. Management and finance knowledge is integrated perfectly here, which provides people from other industry fields, like me, more opportunities in their career development. It is the most worthwhile investment in my life to join the double degree program.
