NYU Shanghai is pleased to welcome its first Senior Executive in Residence, Elizabeth Nien Tze Chen.

Ms. Chen recently retired from Goldman Sachs, where she spent almost two decades engaged in private wealth management, based at the firm's Hong Kong office.

As Senior Executive in Residence, Ms. Chen will be on campus three days each month. She will be participating in campus intellectual life and available to meet with classes, student organizations, and attend events. Ms. Chen will share her experiences in the business world with students, providing a practitioner's perspective, and leverage her extensive network to bring other senior executives to campus to engage with students.
