Mr. ZHANG began the lecture with the inspiring question: what indeed drives us so keen on the career of finance? He answered from the three perspectives: the subversion of philosophy, the challenge of monetary, and the thinking of academics. From The Grand Design by Stephen Hawking to the philosophical understanding of economics, Mr. ZHANG helped to broaden students’ vision with a new standpoint and a unique way of thinking. Then Mr. ZHANG illustrated the opportunities and the challenges in finance by current cases such as YU Ebao and accurate data. He also analyzed the economic environment in China citing some interesting stories. At last, the lecture ended by questions and answers. The communication with Mr. ZHANG brought lots of inspiration and deep thinking to the audience, who are going to take the journey on finance.
