Global Finance Trek Brings Students to London

17 students joined UChicago Careers in Business for a trek to London to explore financial services opportunities in one of the world's most important economic hubs. Students had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the regional culture and employment landscape, develop recruiting relationships with 6 target employers, and network with parents and alumni in the London-area community. The trek connected students with recruiters both within in the United Kingdom and other branches of the participating firms in the United States and around the world.
