Why the U?
My name is Alex Wong. I graduated from Hopkins High School in 2006. I knew during my junior year in high school that I wanted to do something in the business world. I started taking more math classes as well as business classes to prepare myself. I knew the University of Minnesota had one of the best business programs in the states. However, there were other universities that also had decent programs. The reason that finalized my decision to attend the U was the location. The campus is only half an hour away from my house. So it is far enough from my parents to have some independence, but still close enough to visit them whenever I needed to.
My intended major is still undecided, but I am thinking about international business. I would love to travel to different countries for a living, seeing different cultures and their way of life. Also, the idea of studying abroad seems interesting. I already know English, Chinese and studied Spanish through high school so I believe I am well prepared to go into that field of study.
