Ph.D in Finance, Wharton School,
University of Pennsylvania
My name is Lin (Ashley) Shen. I spent four treasured years at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) and received my BSc in Quantitative Finance and Risk Management Science (QFRM) in 2013. Currently, I am working on my PhD in Finance at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The QFRM programme in CUHK provides students with training and resources in both the Business School and the Faculty of Science, which gives us great advantages when applying for jobs and graduate schools. In my case, I participated in the exchange programme with the Wharton School and took two finance PhD courses in the CUHK Business School. These experiences and all of the quantitative training that I received at the Faculty of Science have turned out to be very helpful to my PhD coursework and research.
