As an intern with the Boston Bruins in 2019, Sean Regan ’20 proved he has the talent to succeed at the highest levels in the exciting, competitive and rapidly growing field of sports analytics.
Each day, Regan, who is pursuing a minor in business analytics, put his knowledge to work on a range of complex projects, one of which was building regression models to predict concession revenue and predicting consumer behavior on the Bruins pro shop website.
It wasn’t the first time Regan displayed such capability and poise during an important internship, something that Kiku Jones, associate professor of computer information systems, knows very well.
“He isn’t afraid to get out of his comfort zone,” said Jones. “As a sophomore, Sean accepted an internship with the FBI, which may have intimidated some students — but he went right ahead.”
Regan credits the School of Business and CIS department with helping him develop the confidence and skillsets needed to excel during his internships and, eventually, in professional sports analytics.
