What makes BOP special?

The Business Opportunity Program (BOP) is not just a summer program; it's a community, a network, a family.  I met some of my very best friends my BOP summer, and they have continued ot be great friends, great classmates, and great supporters.  Aside from an amazing network, I have also gained crucial skills that will allow me to successfully navigate through the corporate world.

Discuss your experience at a Big-Four accounting firm:

The summer after my freshman year, I had the opportunity to intern at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Chicago, IL.  During my internship I was able to learn about how Big-Four accounting firms operate and the unique culture at PwC.  I networked with accounting professionals at all stages of their careers and with other interns from all over the country.  During my internship, I also participated in shadows and simulations to better understand the different lines of service (Audit, Tax, and Advisory) offered at PwC.
