Participating in the Eller Windy City Study Tour was one of the best decisions I have made as a Pre-Business major. It gave me the opportunity to network with University of Arizona alumni that were once in my position going through the Eller College of Management. The tour showed some of the many different fields that are associated with business, all while enjoying the magnificent scenery of Downtown Chicago.
One of the site visits that impacted me the most was visiting the Macy’s site and learning about retail management. The reason I liked this so much was because I loved learning about how to interact with customers and simply fulfilling their wants and needs while shopping. I liked getting a tour of the “behind the scenes” Macy’s and seeing the different business officers who make the Macy’s experience what it is.
I have been from Chicago my whole life and looking deeper in the business side of the city, it is definitely a place I would like to work after my college years. Chicago is so vibrant and is filled with endless opportunities, which would make working there an experience of a lifetime. I recommend this Windy City tour to anyone that is looking for a remarkable experience of what business is like in one of the biggest cities in the world and getting to spend time getting to know your fellow Wildcats alumni and peers.
