Haowen Meng graduated with Cum Laude from Rutgers University, New Jersey in May 2010, where he earned a B.A. in mathematics and economics.
He interned in the risk management division at China Development Bank in 2007. During the internship, he participated in various deals, ranging from credit rating system, national projects investment to data analysis for institutional client research.
