Chicago Booth European Business Group is organizing Chicago Booth’s first European Conference, scheduled for April 12, 2010 at Harper Centre in Chicago. The theme of the conference is “Exploring the Challenges and Opportunities for EU/US Business” and we are very excited to announce the attendance of Mr. José María Aznar López, former Prime Minister of Spain, as the keynote speaker.
The purpose of this conference is to strengthen the links between Europe and Booth at multiple levels. At the student level, this conference will increase the awareness of Europe in the Booth diverse student community. At the same time, since we are planning to invite professors, the European and non European faculty will have the opportunity to talk about Europe related issues. From the career perspective, it is our objective to reinforce the commitment of Booth to careers in Europe through this conference, and ideally establish new relationships with European companies present in the US that currently don’t recruit at Booth. Finally but not less importantly, we want to use the organization of this conference as a tool to reinforce the relationships between Booth European Alumni and the current students.
