Dr. Ong Shien Jin’s Education Talent Academy


Please visit the website to learn more about his awesome new education initiative, Education Talent Academy. I have known Dr. Ong since 1998: we both took SPM in 1999 in the same state (Melaka), and then we went to the IMO together in 1999, 2000, 2001 (the last time when he was our team guide, rather than a participant), and after that we studied at MIT as undergraduates in the Math Department. Right now, we are both involved in the Malaysian Informatics and Programming Society. I have agreed to help with his Education Talent Academy as one of the instructors. I am glad that he decided to come back and contribute to the local education scene leaving behind a lucrative position at Wall Street, and I wish him all success.


About the Founder:

Dr. Ong Shien Jin has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from Harvard University, and S.B. in Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His background spans finance, computer science, and mathematics. Prior to founding Education Talent Academy, he was a vice president of the quantitative strategist group at Goldman Sachs in New York City.
