(My program is mathematics and Computing/Financial management)
My reason for choosing the data science and CFM majors is because I am passionate for problem-solving and analyzing in mathematics, finance, and programming, which eventually inspired me to become a financial data scientist. Waterloo is known for the high reputation in mathematics and computer science degrees, and data science is the combination of the two top degrees in Waterloo. Through the exceptional resources and professors, I can develop the necessary knowledge for me to solve the most advanced data analyzing and algorithms. Furthermore, the unique integration of computer science and financial management of CFM is exactly the program I look forward to and prepare me for the ever-expanding financial technology industry. At waterloo, I get to develop knowledge in both degrees through my undergraduate years and the mandatory co-op can help me gain practical knowledge to familiarize myself with the industry. Through Waterloo's exceptional co-op programs and talent in the concentration of mathematics, I believe that Waterloo would be the best university to prepare me to become an outstanding financial data scientist.
