Our SCI team is at the core of our success and our interns are an integral part of building the technology and systems powering our machine learning models and financial products. Interns join us for a period of 3 months on average and work on a variety of timely projects and problems that have a direct impact on the development of our business. Learn about our recent cohort of international interns from ESADE Business School in Barcelona, Spain.
Where is your hometown?
Inner Mongolia, China
My professor connected me with SCI, to conduct the capstone project of my MSc degree in Business Analytics.
What is your role in the internship and what have you been learning thus far?
I along with three other students are doing XBRL project. Our goal is to design an automated architecture in AWS to capture, harmonize, and store the XBRL data from the Security Exchange Commission. So far, I have spent most of my time in harmonizing XBRL data points, as well as aligning XBRL data points with other data points from SCI and its suppliers. I also put forward a unified data structure to contain all the different kinds of financial reports.
What has been your favorite part of the internship?
I think this project is really challenging for me since I have no technical background before coming to ESADE, but that is exactly the thing that makes me excited. I am not the type of person that loves staying in my comfort zone. Challenging myself to do this project forces me to dig into the world of data science. I experienced a strong feeling of achievement when I hacked something that I did not previously understand.
Who is one person that inspires you to be the best version of yourself?
I would say that it is always myself. As I said before, I like challenges and learning things from it. One of my life credos is "fortes fortuna adiduvat", a Latin aphorism which means that "fortune favours the brave." I always push myself to go higher, to be a better me than yesterday.
What are your long-term (10+ years) and short-term (< 5 years) career goals?
Now I am actively seeking job opportunities in the technology sector. My career interests include business analytics and intelligence, data operation, product management, digital transformation and related consulting service. In the long run, I would like to launch my own business in the technology sector when the time is right.
