Hi there! My name is Jia Yi Chen or Carly if you prefer. I am currently a junior pursuing my Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting along with a minor in Computer Science in University at Buffalo. I am a small city girl from Brooklyn, NY but I was born in China. However, Buffalo's been home to me for the past 2 years and I hope to work in a local firm here. I am that shy girl who sits in the back of the classroom and is often seen as the angel, but people who really knows me say I am a devil within. I am pretty active and was on two sports team in high school. I also love learning about new things, as long as it is not politics.
Just like in MGS351, every topic that's been taught had caught my attention, whether it is on computer hardware, Microsoft Access, or HTML which we are currently doing. Since I've had knowledge from both the business and coding perspective, MIS helped me link the two together. For my project in this class, I was assigned the "expert" in the group since I worked with the company. We made a program which converts other countries' currencies to U.S. dollars for a business call Sunglass Hut. This program will benefit the company since it is an international business and there are customers who are consistently making exchanges around the world.
All in all, I am a friendly person who loves learning and meeting new people!
This was the team that I worked with for the project (go check them out!)
