Iam writing this recommendation letter at the request of Mingzhe Cong,who is applying for a Master’s Degree program in your university. Ihave known Mingzhe for two years as his mentor. I have had anopportunity to observe his capability and personality aswell as to evaluate his knowledge of the subject matter.
Mingzhehas proven to be a person with independent opinions, criticalthinking and strong execution. Even though he has access toinformation from a variety of sources such as newspapers, magazines,the Internet, practitioners’ viewpoints and so on, his perspectiveis not limited by mass media’s boundary. His opinions are fresh andunique. He thinks of Chinese relative close and less effectivefinance market as the most competitive strength in terms of riskdiversification and arbitrage opportunity. He is keenly aware that‘talk is talk’, and that action is key. Back test results andpractical experience are used to demonstrate his perspective.
Mingzheis also personally delightful. He is as comfortable to stay around ashe is engaging, pleasant, and humorous. As I got to know Mingzhe overthe years, I became only more impressed by the wide range of hisabilities and his modesty about them. He can build relationships withstrangers quickly and maintain the relationships well. He has veryfew personal interactions since he pays abundant attention toprofessional interpersonal relationships.
Dueto Mingzhe’s six years of abroad experience while at school,multi-cultural, and global perspective have become part of hisgenes. It is easy for him to form partnerships and workeffectively to tackle global or multinational challenges.
Earninga Master’s Degree will help Mingzhe achieve a world-classprofessional status. I am sure you will find him to be a studentwhose talents will only shine further through your post-graduateprogram. I wholeheartedly recommend Mingzhe as a prospective studentin your institution.
