What stood out to you in selecting to attend the M.S. in Commerce Program?

Through several internships during my time as an undergrad, I gradually developed strong interests in marketing and advertising; however, I've struggled to transition my established skill set into the business world. The M.S. in Commerce Program provides a perfect mix of integrated business education as well as different tracks to expand our specialization. It will prepare me and let me grow into a complete marketer in the near future.

What are you looking forward to most in the Program?

I am excited about all the team projects that we will be working on this year. Working alongside peers with diverse backgrounds can always bring new perspectives and valuable insights. I also appreciate the camaraderie within the class and the setting of the Program really unites us together.

What clubs and organizations were you involved with during your time in undergrad?

Michigan Economics Society, Michigan Sales Club, Chinese Students and Scholars Association, and TEDx

What are your hobbies?

Watching mystery TV shows, playing badminton, and cooking
