Hi guys,

My name is Yang Xi but you can call me “Nash”. I obtained my bachelor’s and master’s degree both from Engineering Faculty at National University of Singapore. I worked for a few years in engineering sector until I realized that finance industry is my true love because it involves much bigger challenges, fluctuations and uncertainties. I am the kind of people who prefer equity and derivatives much more than saving money in the bank, so I decided to change my career path.
I choose ESSEC for a lot of reasons. Besides the academic excellence aspect of ESSEC, which may be easy to find online, I would like to emphasize on the ESSEC atmosphere and spirit, from my own experiences. At that time I was looking through different business schools that offer Master in Finance program, I attended many of their seminars and information sessions. I have to say that ESSEC is the only one which makes me feel that the school does care about every single student. Everyone in ESSEC is like a family member to each other. It makes people feel united and bonded, and I do love this kind of feeling. When I was applying I heard that ESSEC’s alumni network is incredibly strong. I do not doubt it at all when I notice that the students can probably remember each of their senior and junior’s names in the same program. And I won’t forget when one of our alumni, Till Hani, flew all the way from France to Singapore to contribute to the ESSEC Open Day. Not to mention the productive advises I received from ESSEC’s professional and extremely amiable staff team when I needed help. I appreciate it a lot, the unique and attractive ESSEC spirit.
That is also one of the reasons I would like to become a student ambassador so that I can give back to the ESSEC community. I would be very happy to hear from you and share with you what I know. I’m willing to answer any question you may have about the ESSEC MIF program or my experiences so far. Please do not hesitate to drop me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
