Dual Degree with Business
Biography: Hi, my name is Matthew Wong and I am from Chicago, Illinois. I am planning on double majoring in business and information science. I grew up playing baseball and chess and played both up until my senior year of college. While on campus, I enjoy working out, meeting new people, and going out with my friends.
Why Information Sciences: Information Sciences is a field that will allow me to pursue my interest in math, analyze data, and be part of the sports world simultaneously. Companies such as Chyronhego and Krossover are two companies that are focused on data analytics in sports, which is the career I am interested in pursuing that helped me discover the field of Information Sciences. These companies have made significant contributions to data analytics on how information is analyzed in sports. Over the years, my interest and knowledge in sports has grown, expanding my understanding of statistics, which has naturally inspired me to learn more about Information Sciences.
