A Bright Future

Angela Liu, MS Finance Alumna
Associate, KPMG

Angela Liu graduated from the MSF program in 2007 with a specialty in banking and corporate finance. In her first professional position out of college, she is working with KPMG in Chicago as an associate in the CFO Advisory Practice.

Because of the confidence and flexibility she gained from faculty and the MSF program, Liu says she is on the career path that can take her there with aplomb. In fact, it was the reputation of the College of Business faculty as a whole that attracted her to the University of Illinois to pursue her studies in finance.

“In considering programs for my master’s degree, I heard that the College of Business faculty was absolutely outstanding. An undergraduate professor shared with me the sheer volume of research that the faculty is engaged in and I knew I wanted to learn from the best. Being taught by professors who are all very-well published, as well as being in a program that has a diverse student base, was absolutely the perfect learning environment for me,” said Liu.

The almost 50,000 alumni of the College of Business are leaders of companies and organizations around the globe. These loyal Illini form a network of professional and personal contacts for current students and fellow graduates. The College regularly brings alumni and students together for professional development and social gatherings on and off campus.
