Please state your name, School of Business major, year (Junior, Senior), and hometown.

My name is Tingting Zhang. I am a graduate student in Master of Science in Financial Analysis program and learning public accounting. I am from China and got to the United States in 2011.

Why did you choose PSU?

PSU offers well-designed and outstanding business programs. It is a student-oriented university. The staffs here are really nice and always ready to help students. Also, PSU provides tons of opportunities for students to reach out to the community and get first-hand working experiences.

Why did you choose to study Business over other majors?

The world today is conducted on a business platform. After reading many business stories, I am curious about what is happening behind the scenes. It is incredible to find the truth and know more about how the world is operated through learning business.  

What made you want to be a Peer Advisor?

I like to help people solve problems and communicate with diverse people. It is also a challenging job in leadership as well as offering accurate information in a limited time.

Why should students seek express advising? What should they expect? How should they prepare?

Students should drop in for express advising to make sure that they are on track towards graduation. They can get the latest information about classes and available resources. Student should expect a fifteen-minute express advising and we will try our best to help them. Students should prepare their questions and print out their DARS report for an efficient express advising.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

In five years, I will be an experienced CPA and work as a senior tax associate in technology industry. I am very interested in human resource as well and will apply for MBA to learn more about business and human resource management. I wish I can have my parents travel around the world with me at that time.
