March 30, 2017 Game Changer.
I came here with the intention to pivot into an industry I was entirely unfamiliar with. This program provided me with the right exposure into the financial technologies industry that I was expected.

To be honest, I have been abroad many of times. However, from Hong Kong, I learned that it is a very busy city, and the financial center in Asia. One must adapt to a busy/ fast pace life style, if one plans to live in Asia. For me, I do not plan on working/living in Asia because the lifestyle is not meant for me. It was absolute... - University of Arizona View Entire Review
