Finance students recognized in annual ceremony

Every year, the finance department holds an award ceremony to recognize its outstanding students, in the categories of leadership and academic excellence. This year, student Wenlong Ma, received the Student Leadership Award and Xinyue Feng, was named an Outstanding Student in Finance.

Faculty members within the department come together to choose the recipient of the Outstanding Student in Finance award, which is given to a graduating student who exhibits academic excellence within the MSM-Finance program.  The Student Leadership Award receives nominations from graduating MSM-Finance students and is awarded to a student who serves as a leader and role model. The recipient also promotes the MSM-Finance program and the Weatherhead image in a positive way, contributes to the total community and stimulates the classroom experience.

“It is a great honor to receive this award and I really appreciate the professors, faculty members and my fellow grad students,” said Feng of the recognition. “Regardless of what others tell you, always practice like you have never won and perform like you have never lost. We did not come this far to only come this far.”
