Dr. August Lee shares his journey to SWU:

“Professor was never in my wish list, actually it was in my not-want-to-be list. I majored in physics in my undergraduate; I was just attracted by the subject, physics, which no one loves. Finance became my favorite subject  when in my MBA program. I thought I found a treasure island. I decided to pursue my Ph.D to get a better job in the finance industry. I thought I was pursuing my dream, but it seems that every path I went through was already planned. Physics and finance do not seem to mix together, but it turns out that physics help me understand many financial principles.God already had a detailed blueprint for me even before I planned my life, and He has been guiding me to make His plan come true. I am still on my journey and excited about what He has for me.”
