UIC Business Swims with the Sharks
For UIC Business, 2018 started out with national recognition. Sophomore Martin Dimitrov of SnapClips and alumnus Nick Sky, ’13, of ChangEd were featured and received investment offers on the January 28th episode of SharkTank. The UIC Business community looks forward to following these Flames founders and their companies during this exciting year.
UIC Business dominated tonight’s episode of Shark Tank. Martin Dimitrov current Business Scholar and SnapClips CEO and Nick Sky, ‘13 of ChangEd shared their stories of hustle and hard work to land deals with the sharks. More than 70 students, alumni, friends and family, faculty and Dean Mikhail gathered on campus to watch the episode and cheer them on.
We Mean Business
More than 40 employers were on campus for the Spring 2018 Business Career Fair hosted by the Business Career Center. Students showed off their updated resumes and polished interview skills for positions at UIC Business partners including Groupon, PwC and Caterpillar.
Big thank you to all of our corporate partnerships who made it to the UIC Business Career Fair today! Students had the chance to speak with potential employers hiring for full-time positions and internship opportunities. @GrouponCareers @BCBSIL @Target @NTcareers pic.twitter.com/wCVWpOATpZ— UIC Business (@UICBusiness) February 13, 2018
