MS in Business Analytics and Risk Management

Yao Zeng PhotoMeet Carey Student Yao Zheng

Yao Zheng has chosen to study at Carey twice, but for very different reasons.

Two years ago, Zheng transferred from North Seattle College to complete his bachelor’s degree in business. Originally from Xinxiang in China’s Henan Province, he had moved to Seattle on his own to enter North Seattle College’s high school completion program. He chose Carey as his next step largely for the Johns Hopkins name, he says: “It stands for a high-reputation school and a successful professional education.” 

He was also drawn to the description of Carey as a place “where business is taught with humanity in mind.” “Humanity is what business needs,” Zheng says. “The world needs integrity, and honest business professionals.”
