Looking back: Andy Wang on his time as a CFM undergraduate

My name is Andy Wang and I graduated in 2013 from the class of 2008. 

I only knew computer science (CS) back in grade 12 and didn’t know a thing about accounting or finance. I saw this program randomly and wanted to take on a challenge in addition to the CS side. I’m so glad I did and things have worked out!

The one obvious advantage for CFM students is essentially doing a double-major from computer science (CS) and accounting and financial management (AFM). I think a hidden advantage that CFM students have is that they’re more competitive to get co-op opportunities in early terms. Most CS students don’t have business acumen or background, and most AFM students don’t have a programming background.

In a study published in Nature Machine Intelligence, Waterloo researchers found that contrary to conventional wisdom, there can be no exact method for deciding whether a given problem may be successfully solved by machine learning tools.​
