University of California, Berkeley
I stayed at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) for one year after joining the CUHK exchange programme. UCB provides a variety of exposures so that everyone can find his own place there. In addition to taking a graduate-level financial engineering course, I worked as a research assistant for an economics professor and gained more insight into academic research. Berkeley organised various social events for exchange students and gave me the initiative to build relationships with people from different cultural backgrounds.
