Alumni Spotlight: Crystal Yun Yuan, MS Finance ‘10

CrystalPicI graduated from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2009 with a BS in Quantities Finance, and Simon Business School in 2010 with a MS in Finance.  Prior to attending Stern, I worked for 3 years at Goldman Sachs Hong Kong as a Finance and Planning Senior Analyst in the Corporate Real Estate Division. I am currently a first year MBA student at the NYU Stern School of Business specializing in Finance and Entrepreneurship.

I chose the Simon Business School because of its strong reputation in finance, and the tight-knit community. Both the MS and MBA programs are relatively small in size, which gave me amazing opportunity to interact with classmates and faculty, and gain access to well-established alumni who help to pass the Meliora spirit on to us.

Simon introduced me to a world class finance education and taught me how to frame and solve complicated problems effectively. It also opened my eyes on how to network in a US culture context. I regard those experiences as tremendous assets for both my career development and personal growth.

My words of advice for prospective students considering Simon Business School:
Rochester is a beautiful city and Simon is a warm community. You will be surprised how much you can learn during the program and how long the friendships and impacts last after the program.
