What has been your most memorable experience at Drucker?
At Drucker, we have easy access to our professors. Last semester, I got a great opportunity to do independent study with professor Schellhorn. He helped me get started doing financial modeling and asset pricing. Drucker also provides many social events for networking and mentoring. I have one of the alumni as my mentor and learned a lot from that experience.

What has been your experience in the Classroom?
Financial Engineering is a joint program conducted by Drucker and the School of Mathematics, which  gives me the flexibility to choose management courses as well as mathematics. The brainstorms in MBA classes help me expand my view and think from different angles. The solid mathematical knowledge gives me great confidence to work on the financial models.

What place do you like to visit while in Claremont?
After class, I always have dinner, watch a movie and hang out with friends in the Claremont Village. We love the Spanish restaurant there. Food is amazing and we can also enjoy live music and experience different cultures. After that, we usually go to a jazz bar to watch a great performance. Claremont is a very good place to study and also a beautiful small town to live in.
