We know that top students have many opportunities and may not be able to commit to a multi-day program. This program gives sophomore students a taste.
If you will be in the Chicagoland area during the summer and want to learn more about our career pathways in analytics, technology and business, apply to the Explore Discover program! You will get an overview to each of our business segments, participate in career preparation sessions, hear about the summer internship experience and start building your network with our professionals and other program participants. We will offer virtual sessions if you are unable to travel to our headquarters.
