My name is Long Nguyen and I am a senior at the Fox School of Business. I am originally from Hanoi, Vietnam but I am currently residing in Washington, DC. As a person who is not sure of my dream job title, I believe MIS is the best major because of its flexibility and adaptability across industries.

Information Technology Skills:

  • Programming & IDE: HTML, PHP, R & RStudio, NetBeans IDE.
  • Content Management System (CMS): SIDEARM Sports
  • Database Management: MySQL
  • Business Intelligence: Tableau, Cognos Workspace Advanced & Framework Manager
  • Other Skills: MS Office proficiency

Career goals:

My first industry of interest is the sporting industry. As technologies begin to evolve, sports teams are more and more reliant on data and technologies to vastly improve their on the field performance. What are the team’s areas of improvement? What exercises should the team implement for maximum result? What tactical changes are necessary to deal with the next opponent? I believe big data and data analytics will reveal insights into those important questions facing sports teams today.

This past summer of my junior year, I have taken the next step in making this dream a reality when I interned for Temple Athletics. Through this internship, I learned a lot about the sports industry and collegiate athletics as a whole. As an MIS major, I was able to contribute significantly and add value to the operations of Temple Athletics. You can read more about my experience with Temple Athletics here.

My second industry of interest is the media and entertainment industry. In the past few years, technologies have enabled companies to move their content online. The appearance of platforms such as Netflix and Hulu enables movies and TV shows to be streamed online anytime, anywhere. In the gaming sector, consumers are moving away from using physical discs to downloading games from online stores. Sony and Microsoft are competing against each other to produce the best entertainment platform. Technologies are transforming the industry to focus more on the customer’s immersive experience such as virtual reality. I believe big data will benefit the media and entertainment industry immensely with its predictive capability, which in turn leads to better product development and trend prediction.

Personal:

I am an avid soccer fan with a specific interest in the Barclays Premier League. I also like to play and learn multiple other sports such as basketball and flag football. I also like to travel to new places around the world and explore the culture and traditions of those new places.
