Why do you want to pursue a career in finance?

My previous academic research in monetary economy and computational finance gave me the opportunity to establish theoretical systems.  I would love to apply these theories into the live financial market one day.

What makes you unique? 

 I have a very well-rounded business background. As an Accountancy major with a minor in Computer Science, I not only learned about the preparation and analysis of financial statements and the management of corporate assets, but also how to program and utilize algorithms, discrete structures, and database systems. Moreover, I am well versed in a variety of topics, including tax, finance, strategic management, and information system technology.
