Master of Science in Financial Risk Management

Why did you decide to study at CSU?

I had many schools in mind when deciding where to study my master’s degree but CSU was the best choice for many reasons. The Financial Risk Management program had many great things to offer like managing real funds and other hands on experience. I had visited Colorado several times before my studies and loved it here, especially the Fort Collins area. Also, when communicating with faculty members during my application process they were always friendly, patient, and informative.

What are your career goals?

My main career goal is to be a Senior Bond Portfolio Analyst.

What types of activities/clubs are you involved in at CSU/Fort Collins?

I work as a graduate assistant for the department of Finance & Real Estate

What do you want people to know about your home country?

My country has very rich history that is reflected in our castles and other monuments. There is beautiful scenery in the countryside with hills that almost look like The Shire from Lord of Rings. ?

What advice would you give to other students who are considering CSU?

If you want a well-rounded education come here. This university has exceptional faculty members that are always willing to help. You will never be bored with all the activities, clubs, and sports CSU has to offer. I am glad I chose CSU.
