Why did you decide to join the Master of Financial Risk Management program?
I decided to join the MFRM program to pivot from actuarial science to finance and risk. Not only has finance been an area that I want to delve deeper into during undergrad, but also some of my previous co-ops in risk management were quite interesting. Thus, the combination made choosing the MFRM program a natural next step for me.
Top Reason(s) for choosing Rotman:
Rotman being a step away from Bay Street, having a vast alumni network, and providing students with ample resource for academic and professional development are the key reasons why I chose it.
What are you looking forward to the most in the program?
I look forward to the industry project the most. Having completed 6 co-ops in undergrad, hands-on projects in the workplace are the best way to learn. This opportunity is invaluable for applying class-taught knowledge to tackle real-life business problems, expanding our professional network in the Toronto financial hub, and securing full-time placements in the future.
What do you expect to gain in your next 10 months at Rotman?
Given the accelerated nature of the MFRM program, the following are just a few to mention. First of all, I wish to improve on my Python skills through the FinTech and Advanced Investment courses as it is a very powerful and commonly used language in the industry. Secondly, I look forward to broaden my horizon in finance and risk during the industry project as I will be working closely with professionals in the area. Last but not least, aside from academic and professional development, I cannot wait to make some great memories with the amazing class of MFRM 2023!
