Student Profile

Calvin Tse - NYU in Shanghai

Calvin Tse

Calvin Tse’s sophomore-year semester at NYU in Shanghai had personal, academic, and professional significance for him. He says, “On a personal level, living in the place where my grandparents grew up and my parents were born was important to me—I had been feeling a bit incomplete living as I do while not knowing anything about where my family came from.”

Ultimately, Calvin would like to work as a trader in a major investment bank. Through his experience in Shanghai, he has come to understand that “we are all being connected in significant ways, through globalization, business, and culture.” Calvin says, “As New Yorkers, we oftentimes believe that we are the center of the universe. Truth is, there is so much more out there, and I’ve just had a small taste of the excitement, the challenges, and the rewards of being a global citizen. I can no longer focus only on business here in New York. As I gain a deeper understanding of Chinese culture and language, my academic and professional opportunities have broadened.”

Calvin will pursue other international opportunities through NYU. He says, “I cannot emphasize enough the impact that gaining a deeper understanding, appreciation, and respect for another culture has had on me. I’ve started learning the language, and I’ve come to understand that it may seem different or weird on first judgment but may be a life skill in the making. That’s what going to Shanghai really started for me.”
