Major: Master’s in Business Administration and Finance
Hometown: Beijing, China
Wang chose to come to UO for graduate school because of the strong reputation of the business programs, distinguished faculty and resources, the inclusive community and the unique opportunities in the Pacific Northwest.
Wang has been a student analyst for the Institute for Policy Research and Engagement and a member of the Master's Investment Group, a group that works closely with faculty to produce a streamlined beginning-to-end investment process. She is also a member of Women of Warsaw, a group in the Warsaw Sports Business Center that discusses sports events, amplifies the diversity of perspectives among professionals and students, enhances collective understanding of the unique challenges women face at work and prepares women for successful careers.
Wang says she’s grateful her program offered students numerous opportunities to travel and gain hands-on experience in their fields of interest. She traveled to Seattle, the Bay Area, Chicago, New York, London and Paris with her cohort, visiting companies and connecting with professionals, giving her “invaluable” practical skills and knowledge for her future life.
What made UO feel like home: “To celebrate the Lunar New Year, we decorated our house with red and gold balloons and shared the foods and cultural traditions of the holiday with some of the MBA and MSF crew. This was the second Lunar New Year that I wasn't able to spend with my family in Beijing, but it still felt like home.”
