I consider myself very lucky to have had the opportunity to participate in the exchange programme to Tsinghua University, one of the top universities in Asia and the world. Based in Beijing, Tsinghua runs many general education courses related to Chinese culture. It is renowned for its science and engineering faculties and offers an array of first-rate finance courses, including actuarial science, intermediate financial theory and cases in corporate finance. To top off this all-around education, the university’s rich seminar and activities programme this semester featured notable guest speakers, including high-level international politicians and top academics. Tsinghua has a very welcoming atmosphere, especially at Schwarzman College, where students from different backgrounds can share opinions and brainstorm.
