A Magical Night With the Business Alumni Association

Recently, I had the pleasure of attending the UIC Business Alumni Association's Annual Winter Soirée. This year's Winter Soirée took place at the fabulous Signature Room at the 95th. Located atop the John Hancock Center, overlooking the breathtaking Chicago skyline, alumni from both UIC Business and the Liautaud Graduate School of Business came together to celebrate each other, and a new year with the Business Alumni Association. 

While highlights included the premium open bar and amazing hors d'oeuvres, the bacon wrapped scallops were my absolute favorite, the most valuable part of the evening was the networking that took place. Needless to say, I seized the opportunity to connect with a variety of professionals from IBM, Infosys, and 
Martin-Brower, to name a few.   

During the event I learned more about the Business Alumni Association, and ways I could get involved as a student. Hosting a variety of events each year the BAA provides opportunities to network with other UIC Business Alumni through professional development, community service, and continuing education events. By attending BAA events, I have been able to truly leverage this network that's 39,000 strong. Every alum I've crossed paths with has been more than helpful with granting me informational interviews and connecting me with others, both inside and outside the network.
