Kingston Wong, Class of 2014


Undergraduate School/Major: I attended Wesleyan University, majoring in economics and music.

Prior to Booth: I worked for six years at CIFC Asset Management in New York with roles that spanned credit analysis, market research, and business development.

Concentrations: Economics, Finance, and Strategic Management.

Activities: Member of the Graduate Business Council, Management Consulting Group, Marketing Group, Booth Entrepreneurship Through Acquisition (BETA), Adam Smith Society, Leadership & Influence Group, and OUTreach.

Career plans: I will be recruiting for a summer associate position at strategy consulting firms this summer.

Why did you choose to apply to and attend Booth? Booth is well-recognized around the world as a leader in economics, finance, and data-driven marketing, which are areas I have interest in developing. Having had quite a few years of business experience, I was also attracted to Booth's flexible curriculum, allowing me to take courses that sufficiently challenge me. Besides, Booth is located in the wonderful city of Chicago, which is a big factor in and of itself.

Use three adjectives to describe your experience at Chicago Booth: Diverse, intense, and fun.

What do you consider a "must visit" place or "must do" activity in Chicago? Second City. Period.

Ask me about...: Recruiting for management consulting or a job outside the US, being an international or an out LGBT student at Booth, and about good eats around Chicago.
