Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

Given my background in automation and consulting, I feel I will fit right into the fast-paced and challenging industry that is, for better or worse, increasingly being automated.

What makes you unique?

I completed all three levels of the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) program while working as a consultant at Deloitte. Studying while working full time reinforced my strong work ethic and has now allowed me to be in the Financial Engineering program while simultaneously working for the Cornell Endowment.
