My name is Claire and I have just finished my third-year Bachelor Study in Finance and Economics at The University of Sydney. As a graduate soon-to-be, I have been actively involved in various career opportunities throughout the year. However, I do think that this Hong Kong internship would be the most exciting and challenging of all. Upon joining this program, I had a choice between Shanghai and Hong Kong. There are two reasons that I chose Hong Kong: first, its special position as ‘the centre of Asia’, incorporated with a mix of both western and Chinese culture; second, Hong Kong has long been one of the world’s most important financial centres, with presence of over 200 financial institutions. I look forward to immerse myself into its unique cultural environment as well as to get more insights on the finance industry.
