Master’s graduate Chengyun (Evan) Wang is loving his work as a Payment and Settlement Analyst at the Bank of China New Zealand.
Evan came to New Zealand from China to study for an undergraduate degree in Accounting and Information Systems at the University of Auckland. After that, he decided to pursue a Master of Applied Management at OPAIC.
“I chose to study in New Zealand because it is known for its high-quality education system and its beautiful natural scenery. I was particularly drawn to Auckland because it's a multicultural city with a thriving business community,” says Evan.
“I decided to study at OPAIC because I was impressed by the range of courses offered and the focus on practical, hands-on learning. I knew that studying at OPAIC would give me the skills and knowledge I needed to succeed in the business world.”
Evan says the best part about studying at OPAIC was the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals who were passionate about their fields.
“The classes were small, which meant that I had plenty of opportunities to ask questions and get feedback. The teachers were always available to provide guidance and support, which made the learning experience enjoyable and rewarding.”
Evan is now working as a Payment and Settlement Analyst at Bank of China New Zealand. His job involves analysing payment data and developing strategies to improve payment and settlement processes.
“The best part of my job is that it challenges me to think creatively and to come up with innovative solutions to complex problems. I also enjoy working with a team of talented professionals who share my passion for excellence.”
Evan says his studies at OPAIC gave him a solid foundation in business management and equipped him with the analytical and problem-solving skills needed to succeed in his current role.
“I also developed strong communication and teamwork skills, which have been invaluable in my work at Bank of China New Zealand.”
His advice for current and future students is to make the most of their time at OPAIC by getting involved in extracurricular activities, networking with other students and professionals, and taking advantage of any opportunities for internships or work experience.
“Also, always be open to learning and be willing to take on new challenges. Remember that your education is a journey, and the more you put into it, the more you'll get out of it.”
