In undergrad, Tom Wright became interested in machine learning and artificial intelligence as a statistics and computer science major. His internships in the industry led to a research opportunity at the Montreal Institute of Learning Algorithms (Mila), where he explored the intersection of machine learning and optimization. MIT Sloan’s Master of Business Analytics program was a natural fit in his career trajectory as “it balances optimization and machine learning.”
Tom immersed himself in all the opportunities that MIT Sloan has to offer like being elected as the MBAn Class President, is a member of the Sloan Senate and its Health and Wellness Committee, and also works as a research assistant with MIT’s Operations Research Center.
Looking to the future, he hopes to work in spaces that are meaningful to him, where he can make positive economic and social impacts.
