Yushi Yang has studied in Macao and worked in the Beijing finance industry.

Now she is undertaking a Master of Economics, following her interests in behavioural and political economics towards a career in research.

What did you do prior to your study at ANU?

I studied in Macao and got a BSc of Event Management. After that, I worked in Beijing for two years in the finance industry.

What are you studying, and why did you decide to undertake this particular degree?

I am currently undertaking the Master of Economics program. I chose this program because I am interested in economics, specially behavioural and political economics.

Why did you choose to study at ANU?

I was thinking that it would be my honour to study one of the best programs in one of the top universities in the world.

What has been your favourite course so far, and why?

Optimisation for economics and financial economics.

I like it because it helps me to develop my critical thinking skills and explore new concepts of optimisation techniques in economics. The lecturer is very good at linking the current topics and concepts to different disciplines.

What is it about ANU that you think sets it apart from other universities in Australia?

ANU is a research-orientated university and the Vice Chancellor is a Nobel Laureate.

What are your career goals?

I plan to do academic research works and be a professional researcher in the future.

What is your favourite thing about Canberra?

I love its peacefulness and calm. It is a carefree but purposeful city.

What advice would you give to someone who is thinking about undertaking postgrad studies?

Think about your career goals and future plan before you decide which program you will undertake and think about what you can obtain from the program, does it match your career goals or future plan or even your dream?
