Why did you decide to join the Master of Financial Risk Management program?

The MFRM program is an ideal platform for me not only to enrich me with specialized knowledge in different types of risk and technical components, especially programming skills, that are critical to advancing my future career path, but it will also offer a practical hands-on learning experience by exposing me to real-world business problems. In addition, coming straight from an undergraduate student at Rotman, I love the entire culture, people, and atmosphere, and therefore I believe that I can readily integrate myself with the new cohort in the program. Most importantly, due to my passion for risk management, I genuinely believe that the program has a steep learning curve and a rewarding experience for me.

Top Reason(s) for choosing Rotman:

The top reason is that I will have the opportunity to collaborate and learn from a cohort who share similar career goals and passions, and there are many collaborative settings where students with diversified backgrounds can work together on different projects. 

What are you looking forward to the most in the program?

I look forward to taking part in the 9-week project where we get to work in financial institutions on real-world risk management subjects that we are interested in. 

What do you expect to gain in your next 10 months at Rotman?

In the next 10 months at Rotman, I expect to enhance my skills in both finance and technologies which are critical components of pursuing a career in risk management today. I am also excited about building long-lasting friendships with our cohort who come from different backgrounds but share similar interests.


The Master of Financial Risk Management is a full-time program designed to prepare ambitious young professionals for careers in risk management and finance.
