Chicago Business – April 22 – 26, 2020

Our five-day Business focused program to Chicago provides students with the perfect mix of industry interaction through our two company visits and a guided tour of the Chicago Board Options Exchange. Students will also participate in an interactive workshop, as well as have plenty of time to see all of the major Windy City landmarks. Students will be exposed to the lively and culturally unique and diverse neighborhoods of the city through a fun team scavenger hunt adventure.
